Long Eaton Health Centre in Midland Street will be closed for a second day on Friday 14 November because of flooding which has affected all three floors of the building.

All power supply to the building has been switched off, phone lines are down and mopping up is underway with a view to getting the building up and running again as soon as possible.

The flooding was caused by a leak in the boiler room on the top floor which ran through the whole building and damaged electrical equipment.

It is hoped that the centre will be open again by Monday.

Patients of:

• Aitune Medical Practice – ring 111

• College Street branch surgery - ring the main surgery number 0115 973 4502
