Hants Road Police reminded drivers that water can cause aquaplaning, which the AA describes as being when a build up of water on your tyres causes them to lose grip on the road and with no traction ‘you could lose control of the car temporarily, and be unable to steer’.

In a tweet earlier today, the account wrote: ‘Please be careful on the roads this morning.

‘There is still plenty of standing water around, causing a risk of aquaplaning.
