A SECTION of road at the entrance to Branksome Beach has been reopened after flooding on Thursday night.

Pinecliff Road was shut off to traffic in both directions up to the turning for Westminster Road while workmen from Borough of Poole attempted to clear the water which had pooled in the area.

A spokesperson for Borough of Poole said on Thursday that a road clearing tanker was on site and workmen were looking to establish the cause of the blockage which caused the road to flood.

She added that once this had been found, the workmen would then jet the gullies and this would only be possible during daylight.
