FED-UP businesspeople and residents on a Stafford road have been hit by flooding just weeks after the last deluge.
Sandon Road was made impassable yet again near the Shell petrol station on Monday morning by a torrent of water.
The last flooding was in June but Demetrious Nicolaou, who runs the Sandon Road fish and chip shop, said it had been a problem for several years.
“The last time it happened a car got stuck in it for about three hours. On Monday my wife went to take our son to playgroup at Sandon Road Baptist Church and within 10 minutes the road was flooded.
“Something needs to be done about it. Some people can’t even get insurance because of the nearby brook.”
Other parts of the borough were hit by the flash floods caused by torrential downpours since the weekend.
Levels on the Rivers Sow and Penk rose over the weekend and on Tuesday afternoon a town car park was closed when it flooded.
Motorists were asked to remove their cars from the Doxey Road long-stay car park near Sainsbury.
Drivers were being diverted to the Doxey Road short-stay car park where they could buy a £3 ticket as a temporary arrangement.
A Stafford Borough Council spokesman said: “The council called on people to move their cars and closed the car park while flooding continued.”
Staffordshire County Council issued an amber warning and advised people to take extra care as more rain could cause surface flooding on roads.
Highways crews have been working all week to keep gullies clear of debris.
Mike Maryon, highways leader, said: “We would ask people to take particular care if travelling. People across the county need to drive with caution and be aware that there could be surface flooding around any corner.
“We continue to clean road gullies across the county but they will still struggle to cope with the sudden deluge of water we are experiencing in these storms.
“We would be grateful if people could alert us to problems in their area by calling the main county council number 0300 111 8000.”
