@ Paul Gosney. It looked very bright and sunny at Portland Bill yesterday. Much better than in Fortuneswell and Weymouth.

Would like to reiterate a point made above. DO NOT drive through flood water, if you don't know how deep it is don't risk it. And if you do choose to give it a go (maybe because you've seem someone else do it) choose a low gear (1st or 2nd) and DO NOT change gear until you are out the other side! The emergency services are stretched enough as it is without rescuing people from large puddles!

I drove through fairly deep water on A350 at Spetisbury this afternoon to go to Blandford and then to avoid it came back via Wimborne. Just after the bridge (near the old "Pudding & Pye" pub,) on the road to Corfe Mullen, the river is flowing with a current across the road and the flood is quite deep. In the dark it's very difficult to see where the road is.
