FLOODING is causing problems for drivers on roads across Dorset today following more heavy rain.

Boundary Lane at St Leonards is reportedly closed both ways due to flooding from Grange Road to the A431 Ringwood Road.

The A352 at Winfrith Newburgh was closed both ways due to flooding earlier today. 

Police were called at 10.05am with signage put in place to alert drivers to the flooding.

The road is currently open and passable with care. 

There’s also slow traffic due to flooding near Corfe Castle with the A351 East Street described as “just passable.”

There are issues with flooding at the A35 Bakers Arms Roundabout with slow traffic on all approaches.

Police were called to the scene at 12.20pm and part of the road was closed. 

Traffic management is now in place and motorists are being urged to avoid the area if possible. 

The local authority is on the scene attempting to clear water. 

Ross Thorne captured footage of the flooding on the A35.

He said: "I’m in a lorry so wasn’t an issue for me, I jumped out to help the motorist in the silver car that had broken down on the left and it came over my wellies, I think the river on the left had just come over the pavement and flooded the road."

Purbeck Police have posted footage of Corfe River which has flooded the road. 

A spokesperson said: "1:45pm Corfe River has already flooded the road today. It has currently subsided but river is still running high and fast. It has the potential to flood again. Please take care."

Police were also called to Blandford Road in Hamworthy at 11.21am due to cars struggling in floodwater.

The local authority is dealing with the incident. 

Traffic is queuing due to flooding on the A35 both ways from the B3150 Stinsford Hill at Stinsford Roundabout to the Monkeys Jump Roundabout.
