Surface water is still blocking or affecting many major and rural roads around the county, although some routes have reopened since Friday’s storms.

Coopers Green Lane between Hatfield and St Albans was one of the roads still shut this morning (Sunday), as was Colney Heath Lane.

An update the Hertfordshire Council Council website states: “We will continue to prioritise residential property flooding.

“We did not suffer heavy rain over night but there is still significant standing water in some locations.

“The general message from the Environment Agency and the emergency services is that the situation is improving.

“All Variable Message Signs have been deployed across the county with either a specific message detailing closures or ‘Localised flooding please drive with care’.”
