A council spokesman said: “We’ve seen a number of careless incidents over the last few days of motorists attempting to drive through flood water – PLEASE DON’T!

"Not only are you risking damage to your vehicle but you’re also risking your life and the lives of others; you could even face prosecution.”

An SYFR spokesman added: “If a road closed sign is in place, please do not attempt to gain access.

“We are still receiving calls for vehicles stranded in floodwaters who are ignoring road closures.”
