Swindon Does Titanic ; Shopping Via Ship-To-Shore

- The Brunel Centre is shut and may not be open tomorrow due to flooding.

- Water is gurgling up through drains all over town with a lot coming up drains in Old Town, which you wouldn't expect with them being on a hill and all that.

- The County Ground is flooded, traffic is being diverted via the Wroughton Park & Ride site, last reported.

- Traffic was gridlocked earlier on in Old Town, taking an hour to get down Kingshill by car.

- Flooding and blocked roads at Cheney Manor, Walcot and Queens Drive.

- Good News; the power was restored to the East side of Swindon following the stream that runs through the Greenbridge Retail Park flooding and flowing into a substation.

- Most taxi firms were not taking bookings, reported about 5pm.

- The River Cole has burst its banks, flooding Merlin Way and Covingham Drive.

- Staff car parks at Honda have been flooded, up to four feet.
