Vehicles are swerving to avoid flooded roads after a bout of heavy rain.

Traffic is at a standstill on West Quay Road after water pooled in the road this morning.

Heavy delays are building on the westbound side as a result, with vehicles tailing back to Platform Road.

There is also a lot of congestion around Southampton Central Station and Westquay as traffic is diverted.

Southampton has been subject to several road closures today following the rain.

Thomas Lewis Way was closed to motorists earlier today after severe flooding.
