Flooding causes tailbacks for motorists
FLOODING caused delays for rush-hour motorists as some water-logged roads had to be shut.
In Basildon Eastmayne was closed for a short time early on Monday morning between Paycocke Road and Nevendon Road due to heavy flooding.
The road eventually re-opened around 8am but the temporary closure caused lengthy delays for motorists trying to join the A127.
