The great flood - day two

Twenty four hours after the flooding started and the road had finally been closed - by the police rather than Roads Service. A car had got stuck (or its engine flooded) in the deepening puddle and had to be pulled out by a recovery truck.

So the police arrived to rescue the driver - I think they shouted encouragement as he got his feet wet. Soon after, a pump arrived.

By late afternoon, the surface water was gone, though they were still pumping out the storm drain into another drain further up the road. Umm.
