A number of roads have been affected in Wiltshire as rain continues to fall throughout the county.
The A363 Bath Road at Bradford on Avon remains partially closed due to flooding after being blocked to traffic yesterday.
The area of Shurnhold on Bath Road, Melksham is also experiencing flooding, while the Westbury Road at Yarnbrook is now clear after earlier flooding, but motorists are advised to take caution in these areas with more rain predicted overnight.
Reybridge and Lacock Bridge are both unpassable today, while there is also flooding at Brinkworth on The Street between School Hill and Stoppers Hill and on the B4069 at Christian Malford between Station Road and Sutton Lane, Sutton Benger.
John Thomson, cabinet member for hghways, said: “Our teams are working closely with partner organisations to keep the highways clear during this bad weather.
"The hard work will continue as we strive to make sure our roads and footways stay as clear as possible during the winter months.”
