Heavy rain causes flooding in All Saints Avenue and Dane Court Road, Margate

By James Rose

An enterprising postman removed his footwear and rolled up his trouser legs before wading through a flooded road in Margate after heavy downpours this morning.

Dan Thompson, of Arlington House, watched vehicles coping with the testing conditions in All Saints Avenue.

He said: "Cars driving through the flood at speed are pushing the water towards neighbouring homes. Pedestrians, take another route!"
