Water really rising up out of drain and flooding the road. Even with no rain this morning the flow was really strong as the underground pipes are linked to a spring which keeps flowing all the time regardless of weather therefore the flooding is continuous.

Flooding is now across whole width of road on both sides of carriageway. Extends down the length of the road for over 35 meters. Fast flowing and 4-6cm deep. Rising out of drain due to blocked underground pipes. Vehicles swerving to avoid flooding, pedestrian path (only safe route for schools) now unusable due to flooding and spray/splashing from cars reaching several meters high and back from road.
