Woman Found Dead In Derbyshire After Body Recovered From Flood Water

FLOODING No train services through Rotherham and M1 affected

Emergency service workers in Derbyshire county, south of Sheffield, recovered a body near the River Derwent after reports of a woman being swept away by floodwater.

"The woman was reported as having been swept away by flood water in Rowsley and the body of what is believed to be the same woman was found in Darley Dale and was recovered at 10.40am".

Yorkshire and the Midlands received the biggest hit, seeing six "danger to life" warnings imposed while five train lines issued "do not travel" cautions by Northern Rail.

There was gridlock at Sheffield's Meadowhall Shopping Centre, also flooded in 2007, after it cancelled its Christmas Live event which was expected to be attended by thousands of people on Thursday evening. The advisories are set to continue into the weekend.

Dozens of people were trapped in a shopping centre in the city of Sheffield overnight after becoming stranded by rising waters and about 100 others were rescued from a nearby mall by firefighters in dinghies.

Allen Cowles, 68, a councillor for Whiston, Rotherham where residents were evacuated as the Whiston Brook burst its banks, said: "I am laying the blame squarely on the Environment Agency". Many took advantage of the receiving free cookies at Starbucks.

Alex Burkill, meteorologist with the Met Office, said: "Some places have seen a month's worth of rain in one day".

People continued to be rescued from flood-hit towns and cities on Friday.

"The rain is easing and moving south but obviously the impact of that will continue to be felt". While Sheffield in just hours received 3.4in (85mm), despite the November average being 3.1in (79mm).

The Environment Agency reduced its number of flood warnings - meaning flooding is expected - to below the 60 mark on Friday afternoon, with forecasters predicting the worst of the rain had been and gone.

"We stand ready to help in any way that we can".
