The A37 is blocked northbound because of flooding at Stratton.

Heavy rain overnight and in the early hours is causing delays across the South West.

The downpour caused flooding at the railway bridge on the A37 and as a result police placed flood warning signs telling people to avoid the road.

Despite these warnings, Travel Dorset says some drivers are not following the police's instructions.
