  • 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.
