Durham Police advice for motorists

Durham Police have issued a statement for motorists travelling on roads affected by flooding and standing water.

Motorists are urged to drive with extreme care through surface water. They should moderate their speed, keep a safe distance from the vehicle in front and be aware that surface water may be deeper than it looks. People should also look out for their neighbours, especially those who may be elderly or vulnerable.

– Supt Graham Hall, Durham Police
