COMMUTERS are having to take their 'shoes and socks off" to walk through a flooded railway bridge in Burnham.

Rail passengers faced some cancelled and altered services on Thursday morning in the wake of heavy rain overnight.

Despite rail lines at Burnham, Buckinghamshire, operating as normal, passengers are facing a treacherous journey getting to the station.

Bella Crystel Mills said: "I couldn’t actually get through and there were no clear signs of a way round

"People were taking shoes and socks off to get through which for one is a health and safety issue and someone was knocked of their motorcycle due to a car slamming their brakes on due to the flood

"There were no signs at all, has been like that since last night." 

Another resident said in a local Facebook group: "All that work on The Elizabeth Line and they didn't sort any low/flooding bridge or Taplow parking issues." 

It comes after the Met Office issued a yellow weather warning for rain across parts of south-east England from 4pm on Wednesday until 3am on Thursday.

Sunny spells are forecast for the east of England this morning, while some heavy and thundery showers could break out elsewhere throughout the day before easing in the evening.

Met Office meteorologist Aidan McGivern said: “A band of rain will clear by the start of Thursday and that will be followed by sunny spells and showers with low pressure never too far away from the UK.

“Some cooler weather, along with some chilly nights, are likely as we move towards the weekend.”
