Flood chaos hits UK drivers

28th September 2012

Flooding from the most intense September storm in 30 years wreaked havoc across England and Wales earlier this week, affecting thousands of drivers.

The worst rainfall is now over according to BBC weather forecasters, but widespread disruption from the floods continues to affect people's cars and their tyres.

At the time of writing, the Met Office website displayed 26 flood warnings, suggesting immediate action needs to be taken by people in those areas. The north-east of the country has been worst hit, with 24 flood warnings.

The AA issued a statement advising drivers to take extra caution on the roads.

Wet conditions led to the organisation being inundated with 8,300 breakdowns nationally and 239 flood water-related call outs on Monday alone.

At the peak of the floods the AA claimed it was about 40 per cent busier that normal, though by Wednesday the number of breakdowns had eased off to about 26 per cent above average.
