Sheffield floods: Every school that is closed or opening late after torrential rain batters city
Flooding battered Sheffield yesterday with a number of roads closed, trains cancelled and schools forced to close early.
The River Don burst its banks late last night and there was an amber ‘danger to life’ warning in place as Sheffield battled the weather.
Bosses at Meadowhall Christmas Live announced at the last-minute that they would be cancelling the event, causing traffic chaos in the area.
Thousands of shoppers and workers were stranded at the shopping centre overnight with Meadowhall offering them a place to stay.
Students were sent home early from schools across Sheffield as the rain intensified and many of them are still affected this morning.
