Flooding has caused road closures across Huntingdonshire this morning.

The A1123 Earith Causeway in Earith is closed in both directions between the B1050 Chapel Lane Junction and the B1050 Shalford’s Road Junction because of flood water.

A diversion is in operation redirecting traffic via the A14 or the A142, adding up to 20 miles on to journeys.

Low Road in St Ives is also closed in both directions between the A1096 Harrison Way junction and the High Street junction.

Meanwhile, B1041 Mill Lane in Little Paxton is also closed in both directions between the Gordon Road junction and the Mill Lane Junction.

The Met Office forecast that the weekend will be predominantly dry, with a rain shower in the early hours of Saturday morning and heavy rain on Sunday night. No weather warnings are in place.

  • Nice picture from the Offords - hardly this morning though as this was yesterday and was the result of a small ditch overflowing for a very short period of time. The road was clear by lunchtime yesterday and is still clear this morning. It’s not exactly sensible for a local paper to be incorrectly advising or implying of a flooded road which many people will be trying to use given that Station Lane Offord and Mill LaneLittle Paxton are genuinely close due to flooding.
