One woman living on Main Road said: "The water was ankle-deep when I went to move my car at 8.30am and covered half the road. From then, it started to spread across the road and down into people's gardens, mainly affecting ours and next door with water flowing through our garden into the field out the back.

"Cars were going through as road has not been shut so they can still get through but causing a bit of a tidal wave and making the water spill into gardens."

Highways officers arrived this lunchtime and put up road closed signs.
