Flooding In Milford


Emergency services are currently in attendance at the scene of severe flooding on the A6, Makeney Road, Milford.  

Firefighters are working with partners from the police, the Hazardous Area Response Team (HART), Emergency Planning teams and Seven Trent Water to deal with the incident caused by a damaged water pipe. 

Several homes along Makeney Road at the junction with Derby Road have been evacuated and welfare checks are being carried out at houses along the route.  

The A6 is closed to through traffic at the Morrisons roundabout in Belper, and at the junction with Wirksworth Road in Duffield. Diversion from Duffield to Belper is by the B5023 Wirksworth Road, then turning right onto the A517 Ashbourne Road at Cowers Lane to Belper. 

From Belper to Duffield through traffic should use the A517 Bridge Hill, then Ashbourne Road to Cowers Lane, then turning left onto the B5023 onto Wirksworth Road to Duffield. 

Seven Trent Water has isolated the burst and it is anticipated that the flow of water will now steadily decrease.  Seven Trent Customers water supply will not be affected by this incident. 

Emergency Planning teams have organised and opened a rest centre for anyone affected by the incident:

The Weston Centre                                                                                                                                 Tamworth Street                                                                                                                                           Duffield                                                                                                                                                  DE56 4ER

Anyone attending the rest centre should consider the safest route considering all road closures.

Anyone who lives in the area and is concerned about access to their property can message Derbyshire police on Facebook or Twitter in the first instance. If that is not possible then please use the non-emergency 101 phone number.
