Devastating flooding in Derbyshire village captured in drone footage

Dramatic drone footage shows the devastating damage caused by Storm Babet in a Derbyshire village.

The streets of Sandiacre, which has a population of around 9,000, are seen submerged in flood water, after being battered by rain on Friday 20 October.

Derbyshire Fire Service urged people to avoid the area and stay out of flood waters, as 59 people and 12 animals were rescued from flooded homes in neighbouring Stapleford.

More than 260 flood warnings were still in place on Saturday, including three indicating a risk to life around the River Derwent in Derbyshire.
