Gloucestershire roads suffer 'atrocious' conditions

Heavy rain led to "atrocious" conditions on roads and caused concern for some residents in Gloucestershire.

Up to 30mm of rain fell overnight, prompting schools to close and police to urge motorists to take care.

Lobleys Drive and the A4173 Stroud Road in Gloucester were both closed and police said cars were becoming stuck near Whaddon and Brookthorpe.

An Environment Agency spokesman said the conditions were "atrocious" and more rain was expected.
