“This is Covenham St. Bartholomew right now. Please please please - if it looks deep it’s likely it is deep! Please don’t try your luck!

“Lots and lots of standing water, flooded roads and dangerous driving conditions. Most are passable but only with care.

“Please drive with great care and only if you have to. If you do drive then please apply a liberal dose of common sense too. Take care out there!”
