So you may have noticed that it has been raining virtually non-stop for the last couple of weeks and is predicted to continue for a while yet.

Someone has also posted the following video to YouTube showing an arial view over Winnersh and the Showcase Cinema roundabout which has been particularly bad causing chaos for those trying to get to and from the M4.
