article imageVideo: Passengers get a soaking as bus fills up with flood water

Honiton - Two videos filmed from the inside of a bus taking on flood water, have gone viral and show passengers on the 380 service getting wet feet as the driver ploughs through flood waters in Devon, south England last month.
The bus was driving through a flooded road section after April showers had combined with an overflowing drain to leave the road under two feet of water. Passengers filmed the bus taking on the flood water and then the subsequent washout as rain water cascades through the front doors.
The footage was recorded last month following heavy showers during April which had left Britain recording one of the wettest months since records began 285 years ago.
The rain had fallen in an area around the River Otter in Honiton, Devonshire and had formed puddles along several sections of the Exeter to Honiton country road. However one section was so deep the bus driver clearly was caught unaware as he drove through the flood regardless.
The Department of Environment has now reduced the number of flood warnings to all but 22 areas as clearer, drier weather settles across Britain. However summer storms could spark off some localised flooding during Thursday and Friday, reports the Daily Telegraph.
The Department of Environment are continuing to keep a close watch of river levels that are still very high since the April rainfalls.
