WET weather is continuing to cause havoc for commuters and residents across the News Shopper patch this morning (JAN 17).

Pictures of cars submerged in water have been flooding Twitter and experts are warning people to remain vigilant.

An Enviroment Agency spokesman said: "Communities in the south East are being advised to remain aware of the potential for further flooding after overnight rain has caused river levels to rise again.

"There are currently 13 flood warnings (including two for the River Darent) and 84 flood alerts in force for the south east.

"A flood warning means that flooding of property is expected and that people should take action to prepare."

Advice for those dealing with flooding is available on the Environment Agency website and from Floodline on 0845 988 1188.
