Woman Found Dead In Derbyshire After Body Recovered From Flood Water

"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", police said in a statement. On Thursday hundreds of shoppers were trapped in shopping centres in both Sheffield and Rotherham.

Rail operator Northern issued "do not travel" advice passengers, with lines between Hull, Leeds, Lincoln and Manchester affected.

"At times like this you get to see the strength of the community, and I have to praise the boys who were coming outside houses, and pumping the water away into rubbish bins, " he said.

The UK's Environment Agency has issued six severe "danger to life" flood warnings in the north of England after the River Don's water levels rose as a result of persistent heavy rainfall.

The greatest concern was for homes in six areas around the River Don near the town of Doncaster where water levels reached risky record highs.

Staff at the centre handed out free drinks and tried to call taxis, while others prepared to sleep by purchasing pyjamas from Primark.
