Meanwhile flooding is reported in the village of Neston, near Corsham.

Meanwhile Bristol residents were shocked as deep floodwater trapped cars in Whitchurch Lane.

Lee Gitsham, 43, set off for work as an office supply manager at 8am, only to be confronted by 2ft-3ft (0.6m-1m) of water which had submerged several cars.

He said: "Parked cars were submerged in water. There were two drivers who tried to get through but got stuck. It was at wing mirror level so it must have been about two to three foot of water.

"I have lived in that area for nearly 10 years. I have never seen it as bad as that. We have had a bit of flooding where the water has covered the pavement but never where it covered car bonnets.

"I saw a white van with a black car behind it. They tried to drive through and got stuck. Driveways were flooding."

An Avon Fire and Rescue Service spokesman said: "We had reports of heavy floodwater in Whitchurch Lane. Everyone had been able to get out of their vehicles safely and no-one was trapped."

Two people were assisted from their vehicle at 4.11pm on Monday (November 21) after driving their car on the B3109 in South Wraxall. Crews from Melksham, Corsham and water rescue teams from Chippenham and Trowbridge attended. Dorset and Wiltshire Fire and Rescue remind people to not try and drive through flood water.
