PARTS of Uttoxeter and the surrounding villages were left underwater after heavy rainfall left rivers set to burst their banks and water seeping into homes.
As the rain continued to fall, emergency services were put to the test as cars became trapped in floods, water seeped into homes and pubs and road closures lead to traffic delays.
The Environment Agency issued a flood alert for the River Dove on the low-lying roads between Rocester and Clay Mills, near Burton.
The agency reported that river levels were falling on the Lower Dove and were expected to continue falling.
A warning was also placed on the river at Marston on Dove and the Dovefields Crossing to Saltbrook Lane. The warning is no longer in force at Rocester, Doveridge and Sudbury.
A flood alert was issued for the low-lying lands between Leek and Rocester on the River Churnet and between Adderly and Spath on the River Tean.
The agency again reported the river levels were falling and expected to keep failing. The warnings were no longer in force at Oakamoor, Upper Tean, Lower Tean and Checkley.
A flood warning was placed on the River Blithe from Blithfield Reservoir to Bancroft but again the river level was slowly falling.
Warnings are no longer in force on Picknall and Marchington Brooks.
On Monday, the A515 was closed in both directions due to flooding between the B5033 at Cockshead Lane and the A50 at Derby Road at Cubley.
Bramshall Road Park, which has a history of suffering with heavy rain, was once again left under water along with many other fields and park across the town.
Paul Needham, landlord of the Dog and Partridge, in Marchington, said the pub suffered from four inches of water on Sunday but fortunately, with a little teamwork the pub managed to open with the locals none-the-wiser.
Mr Needham said: “It is something we need to take up with South Staffs Water as the car park floods from the brook next door and through the back doors of the pub.
“There needs to be something to divert this water. We had four inches of water in the morning to clear up but we were very fortunate everyone mucked in to mop it out and it is a tiled floor. It is an age old problem that keeps coming back.”
