Flooding is affecting parts of the Scarborough area, with drivers warned of hazardous conditions.

Scalby, Eastfield and Cayton Bay are among the areas that have gardens flooded and roads partly submerged, and roads such as the A165 and A64 have excessive standing water in places, making driving treacherous.

The A64 was only just passable in both directions between the Queen Margarets Road and Stoney Haggs Rise junctions. There was flooding along the A64, including the Malton bypass and Whitwell-on-the-Hill.

With heavy rainfall flooding a number of roads and more rain expected across parts of the county over the course of today, police are advising people to keep an eye on the weather forecast and road conditions before they travel.

There are a number of flood warnings and alerts issued by the Environment Agency across all parts of North Yorkshire.

Superintendent Dave Hannan of North Yorkshire Police, said: “All agencies are working together to monitor the current flooding risk across North Yorkshire. There are currently a number of road closures in place across the county due to flooding.

“It’s important that motorists check the weather forecast and only make journeys that are absolutely necessary and under no circumstances ignore road closure signs. It is impossible to judge the depth of flood water and you could put yourself and passengers at risk if you attempt it. Please also remember to adjust your driving to the current road conditions and arrive safely at your destination.

“Over the coming hours and days, we will continue to monitor the situation in residential areas that are at risk, and working with local authority partners, will take the necessary action to ensure the safety of local residents.”
