There are fears this afternoon that the River Sheppey in Somerset could burst its banks near to the village of Godney. Avon and Somerset Police are currently knocking on doors to alert people.
Flash floods left cars stranded and roads under water in and around Shepton Mallet earlier today. Around 30mm of rain, over half the monthly average for July, fell in an isolated area in less than fifteen minutes flooding the pub in Croscombe and nearby homes.
FLOODING: The A3066 in Dorset has been closed both ways due to flooding between Beaminster Tunnel and B3164 (Whetley Cross). It's on the Crewkerne side of the tunnel. Several cars have been abandoned.
