AT FIRST glance it looks like a river scene but the road signs give the game away.

This was Fordstead Lane between Arksey and Barnby Dun yesterday and it is easy to see why it has been closed since before the weekend.

A road notorious for flooding, it lived up to its reputation this weekend when the record-breaking rainfall of April meant it was not passable by ordinary cars.

Trucks might have made it through but with the road surface no longer visible the authorities took the decision to keep it closed until the water subsides.
