Firefighters are currently pumping water out of the basement of a Royston house, following heavy rainfall overnight.

Crews were called to Rock Road in the town shortly before 11am after reports that the electrics had been affected by flooding.

The firefighters are still on scene, pumping out the water from the basement.

Crews and the police were also alerted to flooding on the A10 southbound between Royston to Reed at about midnight, as well as branches on the road.

Neither attended but the matter was passed on to Hertfordshire County Council’s highways team.

Around two hours later, police were called about two vehicles which had broken down in flood waters on the A10 from Royston to Buntingford, one on the northbound stretch and another on the southbound side. One vehicle had to be recovered.

Fire crews were also contacted about flooding in another Royston street, but were not required to attend.
