Probably the safest place to be in that area.  The flood barriers should keep the water away.  Even if they were allowed out, where would they go?  The roads are either flooded or at a standstill with traffic.  

Are they actually not allowed out of meadowhall or strongly advised to stay?

One of the major factors in this is the total lack of drain clearing, nearly every roadside gulley you see is full to the brim.

You hit the nail on the head it's like that over here in s8 as well as the rest of Sheffield.

Looks like the Meadowhall flood defences are going to be tested.

 

Rain to die out later but a few hours yet hope everyone gets home safely.
