DRIVERS are being warned about flooding and road closures.
The River Churn near Cirencester burst its banks on the weekend.
As a result the A419 Old Swindon road near Tesco and towards Dobbies Garden Centre was closed yesterday (Sunday, January 22) due to flooding.
The road is still flooded by Tesco but has been reopened and drivers are now being urged to ‘drive with caution’.
In a photo taken by James Poulton yesterday morning you can see motorists attempt to cross the road.
There is currently a red flood warning in place by the Environment Agency for the River Churn at South Cerney.
Elsewhere there was also flooding in Chesterton on the weekend, this photo was taken by a resident on Saturday (January 14).
The A417 at Maisemore near the Over roundabout has been closed this morning by Gloucestershire Highways due to ‘high river levels’.
Meanwhile, flooding already hit Malmesbury last week with parts of the town underwater.
Malmesbury Victoria Football Club in Poole Road is flooded.
A spokesperson for the club said: “Very tough times at the club. A shame to see the summer of hard work put in by our grounds team under water.
