The water was pouring onto the Great North Road, prompting concerns that the road would close, but no closure has yet been confirmed..

One witness said on facebook: “Wall down with huge amount of water spilling onto the main road coming into Bawtry from Harworth side. Go steady everyone. Reckon it will end up being closed pretty soon.”

Another driver described flooding in the road next to Conisborough Castle adding traffic was very slow taking it in turns for vehicles to pass through

She said Pastures Road had been flooding quite fast on the tight bend, where the river was overflowing onto the road.

“I knew that was going to get worse so decided to come back from Mexborough through Conisborough, which still ended up taking a long time back due to rest of floods.”
