Matlock County Offices flooded last night after a water main burst on Wellington Street.

The pipe burst around 8pm on Friday, April 5, and resulted in a cascade of water flowing down Bank Road.

To make matters worse, a Severn Trent van then went through the road and burst a gas pipe.

Owing to the gas leak, all the residents of Tinkers Yard had to be evacuated from their homes.
