I've got my OH and my daughter at home cramping my style, he can't get to work, daughters school is shut, there is one route now open out of our village but it's not authorised for use cos it's just a bus route and bridge isn't to be used for lots of traffic... That's my route into work later, I'm not prepared to walk so if I can't go down there I won't be going, all other routes are flooded ill try and add pics but they are off facebook so not sure how lol. The shopping mall flooded outside but not inside and is now open as normal for shoppers 🙄

This is all the routes out of our parish.

This is around corner from where we used to live that flooded in 2007, we moved up the hill first opportunity we got, they put in flood defences that said would work in future... Yep that worked 🤬

This is just round corner from where we used to live and the nature reserve is now on road which ducks are enjoying but doubt the policeman in that car is 😳,
Good news though the rains stopped but it carried on until we'll into the early hours

It's awful we were flooded in2007 and spent 6 months living in a caravan on the drive while the house was completely gutted downstairs, the stress is horrendous, we had people saying " you're lucky you are getting everything new " but having to try and choose stuff that is out of stock , flooring paint kitchens fireplaces furniture... all at once along with thousands of others, can't get a builder etc etc I hope I never have to go through it again

Our old house that flooded in 2007 was my partners then and day after it flooded he was exchanging contracts on it and we were going to get a house together obviously they pulled out of sale, and he was out of house over a year but I still had my house so he moved in with me. Eventually when we could sell we moved to top of a hill but when this happened in 2007 they said it wouldn't happen again, so it has and we can move around at top of this hill but can't get out the parish to get to work or anywhere other side of here. Hopefully now it's dry things will improve over the hours, some houses are a right mess in the dip

I said last time it happened how cruel mother nature was sometimes, that happened over a good few days of consistent raining, this time if was 24 hours of hea u rain but ground was already saturated and that's not helped. Although we are grateful this time we arnt flooded we are sorry for those that are.

Sam, thats terrible news, Im so pleased your house isnt actually affected but it must be devastating for the area and for your friends and neighbours and for others in this position around the country.

We have a river running alongside our home, which can get quite high and is scary, but thankfully hasnt ever caused flooding. We love where we live and, as especially as DH has lived there all his life, we feel safe enough and wouldnt consider moving but it does make us realise how dangerous high waters can be.
