UPDATE: Wild weather causes travel chaos across Dorset

Dorset Echo: Flooding on Dorset roads Flooding on Dorset roads

FLOODING is causing travel disruption on Dorset roads.

Bus services in Weymouth were diverted from Debenhams, Town Bridge or North Quay earlier this morning due to flooding.

A spokesman for First Bus apologised for the disruption and said the routes have now returned to normal.

The A352 was blocked both ways earlier between Knighton Lane and B3144 Alington Avenue on Main Street in Broadmayne near Dorchester. Traffic is now moving in the area.

The West Stafford bypass has also been closed due to flooding.

Due to more bad weather expected today, Condor Ferry sailings from Weymouth have been cancelled with extra trips set for tomorrow.

More to follow.

Town Bridfe ??? Novel spelling - work experience at the newsdesk again?
Perhaps they should be taught how to turn on the spell-checker (and look at what they have typed).

The Echo subeditors are always too busy working on ever more dramatic alliterative headlines. They've got tired of STORM CHAOS; now it's always WILD WEATHER.
