Several of Dorset's roads are still disrupted due to flooding.

Heavy and persistent rain on Thursday, December 7, have left some roads across the county closed or causing delays due to flood water.

The A37 near Charminster is the latest route experience flooding which has led to temporary traffic lights put in place for safety reasons which may causing traffic to be slow heading in both directions from Weirs Roundabout to Sodern Lane.

These lights have become faulty and are now causing more delays.

Along the A354 it is just passable due to flooding between the A35 Football Ground Roundabout in Dorchester and Dorchester Road at Upwey.

At Lower Bockhampton, Bockhampton Lane both ways is closed due to flooding between Knapwater and the West Stafford turn off.

Further east the A35 is closed due to flooding from Quarry Hill in Morden to Poole Hill at Bere Regis.

In the north of the county, Lower Road is closed due to flooding from Springfields to Hargrove Cottages in Stalbridge.
