Motorists urged to heed flood warning signs
DRIVERS are being urged to take heed of flood warning signs after several vehicles ran into trouble.
A number of roads have been closed off due to flooding across Cambridgeshire, but motorists are ignoring signs and trying to drive through the water.
As a result, police and fire crews have had to rescue stranded motorists.
Inspector Iain Clark said: “Several routes have been closed off with signs and cones but it appears some drivers are choosing to ignore these or even move them out of the way.
“We are having to deploy resources to rescue stricken motorists and that is taking them away from other duties.

“These road signs are there for a reason, any motorist caught ignoring them will be prosecuted.”
