UK : Whaley Bridge dam – Work to prevent from bursting is continuing (BBC)

Work to prevent a damaged dam in Derbyshire from bursting is continuing as the Met Office warns of thunderstorms and possible flooding.

Workers have been pumping water out of the 300-million-gallon Toddbrook Reservoir near Whaley Bridge.

Extra pumps are being installed to speed up the work and contractors are putting concrete between bags of ballast placed on the dam wall.

But the risk of collapse remains at a “critical level”.
