TORRENTIAL rain has caused flash floods across the Isle of Wight this afternoon.

This was the scene along the Military Road earlier, with further reports of flooding on Whippingham Road and Yarmouth Road.

The Middle Road from Calbourne Mill to Calbourne crossroads is currently closed due to a lot of standing water.

Other roads are said to be barely passable and motorists are being warned to take extra care.

Below, is the scene from Newbridge, in a video taken by County Press reader, Lee Cameron.

The road has been closed by police and Southern Vectis Route 7 via Newbridge will divert via Gunville, Forest Road to Station Road, until flood water has subsided.
