    Amy Woodfield

    BBC News

    A "major exercise" is taking place this week to test how organisations respond to a large flood along the whole of the River Trent.

    The exercise will test the Environment Agency, emergency services, councils, government departments, utility companies, the Met Office and the military exchange information.

    Those involved will pretend the area has suffered an intense storm, which caused significant flooding.

    Quote Message: We don’t get second chances during a major flooding incident so it is essential that we test our response through exercises like this one, to make sure every organisation can work together to do everything possible for communities when we are faced with the real thing." from Paul Lockhart Environment Agency

    The BBC is awaiting a response from INEOS and the final decision on the site will be made by central government and not Derbyshire County Council.
