You have probably already seen the pictures and videos from the weekend of parts of London and the southeast being battered by flash floods. So we thought that now would be a good time to remind motorists about the dangers of driving into deep floodwater.
While most people have enough common sense not to drive through deep floodwater, unfortunately, there are always those who throw common sense to the wind.
This private hire vehicle driver soon found out why the other motorists were not going through the floodwater.
And, after beeping his horn in disgust at their refusal to drive forward, the driver of the Zafira soon found out why they were holding back.
Before you go, we have put all of our best videos, groups, contact details and social media handles in one place, which you can find by clicking HERE
Before you go...
We need your help. As former emergency services & armed forces personnel, we pride ourselves on bringing you important, fast-moving and breaking news stories which are free from the negative bias which is often directed at the emergency services by some sections of the mainstream media.
One of the reasons we started 'Emergency Services News' was because we became tired of reading badly informed stories about the emergency services which seemed only ever to highlight negative aspects of the job.
We want to be the unheard voice of the remarkable men and women who serve in the emergency services, NHS and armed forces. And with around 500k page views each month, we are getting there!
As income from ads, the mainstay source of income for most publishers, continues to decline; we need the help of our readers.
And remember, if you have a service, product or job vacancy that you would like to promote to our large readership, then you can buy advertising space in our articles.
You can support emergency services news from as little as £1. It only takes a minute. Every contribution, however big or small, is vital for our future.
Please help us to continue to highlight the life-saving work of the emergency services, NHS and armed forces by becoming a supporter.
