Ilkeston Carnival has been cancelled because of the bad weather.

The carnival and parade were called off on Saturday morning due to the heavy rain which has fallen overnight and throughout today.

Today’s event was due to begin with a parade through the town’s streets, leaving Belfield Street at 12.30pm.

But the Ilkeston Lions have cancelled the event, which was due to take place at the Rutland Recreation Ground. It will not be rescheduled.
