Surrey Police is warning motorists not to drive through road closures put in place due to flooding after a number of vehicles had to be towed out of the water on the A320 near Staines this morning (Friday 10 January).
The road has been closed due to severe flooding close to its junction with Coopers Close however some motorists have attempted to drive through the standing water and got stuck.
Other vehicles have also attempted to do the same over recent days on Chertsey Bridge which has also been closed due to flooding.
Superintendent Chris Moon said: “Any road closures put in place because of flooding are clearly there for a reason and I would urge drivers not to attempt to drive through the water.
“There may be hazards you cannot see and you run the risk of your vehicle becoming stuck. Two feet of water is enough to float a car and you could be putting yourself and anyone else in your vehicle in danger.”
