It has been revealed at least 80 properties were affected by Worksop’s recent flooding.

Intense rainfall on Tuesday night (August 16) resulted in a flash flood in Worksop, submerging cars in water, breaking through supermarket roofs and even making its way into Bassetlaw Hospital.

It is thought that waters have now receded.

Yesterday it was revealed many houses and businesses were affected by the flooding, and that the Chesterfield Canal, near Matalan, had its wall blasted out by the force of the water.
