Driving in floods and heavy rain
Please be careful when driving in floods and heavy rain. We have seen an increase of vehicles with water damage. The video clip is of a car that was recently taken through Redbournbury Mill ford. The damage to the engine was not repairable.
Keep safe! The AA have given great advice on the link below.
