Public urged to avoid flooded roads

14 January 2021
Thurrock council is urging residents to avoid flooded roads and pathways after heavy rainfall and high-tides caused flooding in the Stanford-le-Hope and Bulphan areas today.
Leader of Thurrock Council, Cllr Rob Gledhill, said: "While no-one should be going out unless it is absolutely essential, I would urge those that have to travel to make sure that they avoid the areas affected by flooding as much as possible and under no circumstances drive or walk into standing water.
