Get your comment right before you publish it! The story says nothing of the police clearing the flood, just that they've issued a warning to the public about the road closure. Probably a warning to the few who the closure does not apply to!!

Blimey William.. where did that come from?
Did the HT edit it or did you do what I do and just skim read then make an ill-informed comment.

18000 litres a minute is blimmin loads. that is the amount of water in the main pool in Hereford every 2 hours.
