A ROAD was briefly left flooded following a cloudburst.

Police issued a warning about Warsash Road in Warsash following a heavy downpour yesterday afternoon.

Peter Nash, the owner of Peter Nash Specialist Cars on Warsash Road, said: ‘We had more rain than we would normally have in most months in about a quarter of an hour – it was incredible.

‘It was probably about a foot deep across the road at its worst, but it went again very quickly.

‘We’ve had quite a few problems with one of the drains here – it’s become a regular thing over the past few months and we have been trying to get someone to do something about it.

‘I’ve been asking the council to clean it out, but they haven’t so far.’
