Guernsey has already had its wettest February in 35 years, according to the Met Office.

Thursday saw 35.3mm of rain falling in 24 hours. The last time the island was waterlogged was in 1978.

Guernsey Police confirmed that up to 60 roads were under two to three feet of water.

The Fire Service has had about 100 calls and attended eight incidents, and bus services were cancelled as roads became impassable.
