A road outside the village of Sutton has been left submerged under water yesterday (December 30).

The road Sutton Gault Causeway, between The Anchor Inn and the Bedingham’s Drove junction, has been closed since around 3pm after being flooded during a spell of bad weather.

Water levels in the River Ouse reached 3.06m yesterdat, according to the environment agency.

The low-lying Fenland village has been affected by flooding in the past, with the river bursting its banks in November last year.

Police have not attended the scene and have said it is not expected to cause many drivers disruption.

The Environment Agency issued a flood alert for the area known as the Hundred Foot Washes on Christmas Day.

In a statement issued today (Decmeber 31) a spokesperson said: “Due to high water levels there may be up to 13cm of flood water on the causeway at Sutton Gault in Cambridgeshire, and 30cm of flood water on the causeway at Welney in Norfolk. The uneven surface of the road may mean that water is deeper in places.

“The causeway at Earith currently has no issues. We will continue to monitor the situation and provide updates.”
