Cambridgeshire Police have warned people to avoid driving unless "absolutely necessary" due to heavy rain in the area.
The force said there was localised flooding in March, Wisbech, Dry Drayton and Bar Hill, while traffic was moving extremely slow on parts of the A14 and surrounding roads.
"We would urge people not to go out in a vehicle unless absolutely necessary and also not to call 999 unless it is a real emergency where life is at risk," chief inspector Nick Night said.
