Watery Lane – In Pictures

These pictures were taken today, Sunday 3 February, and show how deep the water is in Watery Lane.  The road is not passable by car and Essex Fire Service have said the following in response to their rescue of 5 motorists last night.

Firefighters had to rescue five adults from three vehicles after motorists ignored flood water and drove through getting themselves stranded.
ECFRS’ swift water rescue team helped the occupants to dry land before leaving the scene at 19:24 hrs.
Crews continue to stress the dangers of driving into flood water but these, and warning signs at the scene, continued to be ignored at this notorious flood blackspot.
