COMMUTERS and residents have been warned that a main road between Duckmanton and Shuttlewood, near Bolsover, has been closed this morning, Monday, January 28, after flooding problems.

The B6418 Buttermilk Lane, near the A632 Chesterfield Road, became impassable after a combination of thawing weekend snow and rain with flooding water coming from the River Doe Lea.

Met Office experts explained the region is also likely to face flooding problems because the ground has been frozen and can only absorb so much water which is now running off on to roads and land.
