After 20 years of low rainfall we have now been deluged in the past year. At this rate we will all need scuba diving equipment just to get to work.

I have just been to the VIC next to the Pavilion and they are open, so I bought my train ticket for next week there.

Roads between Eastbourne and Heathfield are becoming quite flooded on edges of roads - so when you drive along there's an enormous amount of water spraying out at sides of car - it's still pouring with rain so these roads will be very dangerous at night - be very careful and if possible, wait until morning.

At some parts the rain water has spread to the middle of the road.

Time to dig another reservoir!
This would fill up quickly and we can avoid a drought in the summer.

So, we've just endured months of holdups and general mayhem on the A27 at Lancing whilst they do drainage work and for what? We've now got flooding on the eastbound carriageway and one lane is closed. Brilliant!

Well done all!!!

My mates a chicken and is devastated by this recent road flooding.


If he can't cross the road for any reason then he won't be paid by the firm that writes jokes for Christmas crackers.

The flooding's good for a lot of birds though - ducks, swans etc.
Christmas isn't a good time for chickens. Quite a lot get a chicken instead of a turkey as they are smaller. Turkey is too big for 1 or 2 people. Better off with a frozen chicken.

plantwoman is right. One lane closed east bound on the A27 at the Sussex Pad due to flooding along a stretch where the Highways Agency has just installed new drainage.
You can see the new drains inches deep in water. It never flooded this badly before the drainage work was carried out so what's wrong?

Even by the slow 5hit arfus standards this so called reporting is pathetic, breaking news that was last updated before noon on Christmas Eve. The one day you need upto date travel news and this rag can not be bothered.

Please Santa all I want for Christmas is a decent local newspaper.

Same on the TV news though. It's Christmas Eve and most of the journalists have started their holidays.
