Floods in Caddington cause chaos

FLOODING in Caddington is causing problems for motorists this morning.

Drivers are having to make their way through deep puddles across the entire road, with queues of traffic creating delays.

A Central Bedfordshire spokesperson said the situation is not bad enough to warrant the attention of the emergency services, but suggested emergency planning websites for motorists who are worried about travelling.
