    More rain more flooding, more daft driving

    Swamped Porsche

    The bit I love about this is that drowned porsche at the end, still has the windscreen wipers going, rather futile I would have thought, but top marks for waterproofing of the electrical system 🙂

    @ 1:10 into video – as above it tickled me too 🙂

    no wonder the driver didn’t want to be filmed about that little excursion

    I presume it got stuck before the water got so high and they didn’t just try to drive it through that!

    On the basis that the driver & passenger had to be rescued & that he didn’t want to appear on camera – leads me to suspect that the driver had his brain sucked out by aliens before starting up his lovely little german motor this morning…

    If you look closely at the Porsche you will see the Windscreen wipers are still working, despite the roof level water 😆

    “A couple who got stuck in what very much looked like a ford”

    Imagine paying all that money for a Porsche and someone thinks you’re driving a Ford 😆

    Dickyboy – or else the driver was playing away and it wasn’t aliens…. 😀

    LOL at the Porsche driving idiots.

    If only it had been an Audi 🙁

    and if not we will be rescued by others putting their lives at risk.

    in which case that is a mighty impressive “creating a reason to stay away for the night” excuse & I hope she/he was worth it 🙂

    Just realised that’s just down the road from me, I ride that way quite a lot – maybe I’ll stay on the turbo tonight 😯

    I’m not entirely sure that any “lives” were actually risked in rescuing those silly people from that puddle. Yes, they propably got their socks and trousers wet, but life threathening, i don’t think so………….

    I’ve pulled people out of that bit of road before. There is a socking great gauge board telling people how deep it is and they still go through!!! No accounting for stupidity I suppose and that site is not flowing as it is more of a pond so we just get the dry bags out and haul them out.

    I’m currently on duty in the incident room, there’s a LOT of water in places, be careful out there, manhole lids have lifted, if you can’t see the ground don’t walk in it…

    I’d me more amazed if it was an Alfa Romeo and the electricals were still working fully. On a dry day in June.

    Thats not far from me too. The road dips under a railway bridge and always floods, its been closed for weeks because of this. The porsche driver would have to drive round the plastic road closed barriers and ignore the 2 depth markers showing 4ft to get there.

    People really are their own worst enemies 🙄

    The cheeky trails along thd riverbank are best avoided for a while too!

    On another note, the FC have been carrying out riverbank works just upstream from here to create a wetland habitat. Seems they got there moneys worth!

    Raining in East London no stop today and even now into the evening
    Drains are now blocking and overly large puddles swamping some pavements.

    insurance claim is going to make interesting reading
