Police are warning motorists not to make non-essential journeys after the town suffered major flooding after 6pm yesterday.

Drivers are being warned to find alternative routes if roads are blocked, but if there is no other option to drive slowly, using the middle of the road.

They are also being told to check their brakes and adjust speed to the conditions as even a small amount of water on the road can cause a danger.
