Tim Moore (pictured), clerk to Withybrook Parish Council, said: “I can’t believe motorists will attempt to drive through the floods, it’s so dangerous.

“I’ve put bollards around the worst areas to stop people even attempting it.”

He said waters rose quickly in the village.

“We’re worried about houses being flooded,” added Mr Moore.
