Dam wall collapse in UK

Dam wall collapse in UK

Thousands of people are being evacuated from a town because part of a reservoir wall has collapsed in floods.

Engineers are pumping water from the 300-million-gallon Toddbrook Reservoir amid fears it could burst and swamp Whaley Bridge in Derbyshire.

Police have told the town’s 6,500 residents to gather at a school, taking pets and medication with them.
A severe flood warning, which means a threat to life, has been issued for the River Goyt, below the reservoir.
