A Rickmansworth road is set to remain closed overnight due to severe flooding.

Police and firefighters were called to Park Road at 9.55am following the heavy rainfall which has caused chaos across south west Hertfordshire today.

Firefighters spent hours pumping away the excess water, much of which came from the River Chess, which has burst its banks in five places.

Highways are also on the scene and Hertfordshire Constabulary said they expect the road will remain closed overnight.
