RECKLESS motorists are risking their lives by driving through the floods at Staverton.

The foolhardy drivers are ignoring 'road closed' signs and cones on The Causeway near Nestle's Cereal Partners factory.

They are driving through the flooded road - and straight past two vehicles already abandoned by their owners.

Trowbridge Fire Station advised drivers not to risk attempting to get through the floods, which have covered nearby fields.

They said: "The River Avon has breached the causeway at Staverton.

"This road is dangerous now and will soon be impassable.

Don't risk it."
