DRAMATIC video has emerged showing a flooded road in Bradford this morning - as Storm Babet sweeps through the area.

The video shows cars driving through deep floodwater on Shearbridge Road at around 8am.

Marge Hunter, who sent the Telegraph & Argus the footage, said: "The man in the high vis cleared the drains and the water has now cleared."

Storm Babet is unleashing torrential rain and strong winds across the country.

A Met Office amber warning of rain is in force in West Yorkshire until 6am tomorrow.

An amber warning is the second most serious alert to be issued by the weather agency.

The warning states deep floodwater is possible, causing "danger to life".

The Environment Agency has also released an "act now" flood warning for Bradford Beck.

It applies to properties along Bradford Beck and its tributaries and includes Bradford city centre.

The warning states: "Bradford Beck in the vicinity of Bradford Mills, Bradford, is rising rapidly in response to persistent rain overnight.

"Flooding of roads and property are possible.

"Further rain which is forecast throughout today will mean that water levels will continue to rise.

"Our incident rooms are open and we are closely monitoring the situation.

"Monitor local water levels and weather conditions, and consider putting your flood plan into action.

"You should avoid walking, cycling or driving through flood water."

Meanwhile, the northbound exit slip road on the M606 in Bradford remains shut at junction three due to flooding.
