Flash floods have hit many parts of Derbyshire.

The county’s fire service said it received 80 calls about flooding in the space of just one hour last night – amid intense thunderstorms triggered by hot and very humid air from Spain.

There could be more thundery showers in the area today, weather forecasters said.
