Further weather damage expected today after deluges yesterday in Sheffield and Derbyshire

Flood warnings are in place in the North of England following deluges in Sheffield and Derbyshire yesterday that damaged homes and closed roads.

Flood waters rising
Roads and a rail link were closed

Houses in some parts of Sheffield were inundated by up to eight inches of water and a rail link between the city and Chesterfield was closed.

Sheffield was one of the areas worst affected by the devastating floods of summer 2007. But firefighters said yesterday's damage was due to the city's drainage system being overloaded, rather than the River Don breaking its banks - the cause of the deluge two years ago.
