Huttons Ambo Flooding 2015

After days of rain the Low Lane to Malton is closed to ordinary vehicles after the Derwent broke its banks and flooded the adjacent fields.

Water levels were high yesterday and rose another half a meter but thankfully now are subsiding.

As before in 2012 the water reached the viaduct at the bottom of Water Lane.

Once again we can be thankful that no homes have been flooded in Huttons Ambo and our thoughts go out to all those who have lost their homes and livelihoods elsewhere in our county and across the country.

You can check on the levels of the River Derwent in real time here at the Environment Agency website.
