Staffordshire flooding: A38 closed between Lichfield and Derby
The A38 has been closed in both directions after the River Dove bursts its banks.
The road is closed between Weeford island in Lichfield and Toyota island near Derby because of flooding near Burton.
Southbound traffic is being diverted along the A50 westbound to the M1, from the M1 to the A42, then on to the M42 and the A5, where motorists can rejoin the A38 at Lichfield.
Northbound traffic is also being diverted along the same roads in the opposite direction via the A5, the M42, the A42, the M1 and the A50, where motorists can rejoin the A38 near Derby.

Eleven flood warnings remain in place across the county following the weekend rain, the Environment Agency has said.
They apply to low lying land close to the rivers Tame, Dove, Blithe and Trent.
Earlier today, Staffordshire Fire and Rescue crews guided 20 sheep to dry land after the River Trent burst its banks near to Rugeley.
The flooding also caused disruption on the A51.
