School Buses Caught Up In Problems On The A37

A37 Stratton Queues 4

(Updated 12:07pm 15th January 2015)

8:16am 15th January 2015

Heavy rain and gale force winds have battered much of Dorset overnight.

Several trees have come down and roads have been flooded, including the West Stafford Bypass and the A37 at Stratton.

Damory Coaches have told Wessex FM problems on the A37 mean their school buses have been caught up in tailbacks.

They're reassuring parents in the Maiden Newton and Beaminster area - they will collect their children as quickly as possible.

Crews from Sturminster Newton and Shaftesbury rescued 2 people from their vehicle which had become stranded in flood water up to their waist.
