Storm Ciara in Kent: Motorist trapped in flood water

A driver came a cropper after attempting to drive through flood water on the A20.

The motorist took a gamble and tried to navigate the flooded road, but came to a grinding halt this evening.

The incident happened at Harrietsham as Storm Ciara continued to batter Kent.

Channel crossings have been suspended and the Port of Dover is closed.

Drivers travelling between Kent and Essex have been facing delays since before 7am, as the gusts have forced the closure of the QEII Bridge at the Dartford Crossing.

Traffic was being held on the M25 this morning to allow a diversion to be put in place through the east tunnel and long delays still remain in the area. This evening the M20 near Maidstone had to be closed for repairs.
