In these images we show the level of flooding as residents of Tudor Crescent and Preston Road, Rainworth, trudged through water at knee-height, and dad Alan Beavis sent in photos and video both during the rains, and as the family assessed the damage to their house.

Father of three, Alan Beavis told of the turmoil as the flood grew and broke through into the house.

The 32-year-old said: "It started as a bit of rain and hailstone and shortly after it's just all started seeping in through the back garden and then it was a full on flood.

"You've got houses behind mine, it flooded all their gardens and channeled straight though mine. I had my kids in the back ground helping me with sweeping brushes trying to get the water away, and then the concrete plinths at the bottom of the fence started breaking, and the water was that heavy, the force of it started to snap them. It came through, ripped my double gates down.

The family have fought to get water out of the house since last night.

"It flowed on the drive and ripped all the concrete off the edge. We've lost of the flooring, the couch, our laptops.

"I've been picking up my kids toys from other people's gardens 400 yards away.

Vinny Baker, of Tudor Crescent said flooding hit a number of homes on the street although his own home luckily escaped damage.

He added that residents were blaming the neighbouring housing development for causing extra runoff, and claims the builders have not done enough to negate the issue.

The family have cleared out the house while they make insurance claims after the disaster.

He said: "I was fortunate that our house not affected by flooding but the people opposite have had water in their kitchen and their lounge, and a number of houses behind them have had the same.

"There's a lot of anger at the new build due to the water running off the development."

But the Chad understands that developers have stepped up to the plate and offered to help residents with damage after the floods.

Alan added: "People have got anger towards the building site, but they've been quite understanding and they're willing to come out and do all the garden.

The company want to help the community. They've spent the past two days widening the drainage, so yeah, we're satisfied with how they've handled it.

Derbyshire Fire and Rescue Service confirmed firefighters from Blidworth attended two flooding related incidents in the Rainworth area last night (Wednesday, June 15 ) after some heavy rain hit the area.

A spokesman said: "The first call came in at 7.52pm and involved flooding at properties on St Peters Drive, Rainworth.

"Crews used a light portable pump to move water – which had also begun to enter a garage - away from the buildings to ensure no electrics were endangered.

Residents of Tudor Crescent were knee-deep in water after heavy rain and storms issued a Met Office weather alert.

"Another call then came in shortly after this incident had been dealt with at 8.29pm. This involved flooding at five properties on Rochester Road, (off Tudor Crescent), Rainworth.

"Firefighters used one major pump, one light portable pump and hose reels to clear water from the properties again to ensure electrics were not endangered. Shovels and buckets were also used in this incident, which had been dealt with by 9.47pm.

"Nobody was injured in either incident."

A spokesman for Taylor Wimpey said: “Measures have been put in place at our development site to mitigate the risk of surface-water flooding, in accordance with planning permission, but unfortunately the unprecedented levels of rainfall on Wednesday resulted in localised flooding on land neighbouring our site.

“We will be undertaking a review of our mitigation measures in the wake of this event and are engaging directly with affected local residents.”

Residents on the street claim the flood was exacerbated by run-off form a new housing development being built nearby.
