A garage has closed after heavy rain has caused flooding inside the premises. 

The Texaco garage at Burton Bradstock has had to close after flooding caused by the effects of Storm Nelson. 

Chris Jackson, who works at the garage, said the site had been closed at around 3.30pm following the weather. 

It is unsure when the garage will reopen again as the water has flooded the inside of the building. 

Mr Jackson said: "The garage has had to close today and due to flooding being inside the building we are not sure if we will be able to open tomorrow either."

Chris Peacock of Burton Bradstock cars next to the Texaco garage, said: "Some people have been trying to get through the floods at Bredy Lane which is pretty flooded."

He added that the shop is still open, and the main road looks 'okay' although the surrounding villages have been hit by the poor weather. 

Flooding had previously affected that road during stormy weather in December. 

This follows a day of flooding across West Dorset, that has also seen around 105 properties without power in West Bay in the DT6 4EN. 

The problem was first reported the problem at 12.43pm on Thursday, March 28. This issue is not expected to be resolved before 11pm.

A flood warning Flooding has also been put in place to affect locations near the River Lim, River Char, River Winniford, Simene River, River Brit, River Asker, River Mangerton, River Bride.
