Kayakers Join Traffic on Flooded Road in Essex

Commuters on a bus in Essex got a surprise on October 10, when a group of kayakers passed them by on a flooded road. The kayakers were travelling on the Strood onto Mersea Island, which is regularly flooded.

Kayaker Oliver Jordan told Storyful that he “couldn’t believe how many people drove through it! If it’s deep enough to kayak in, surely it’s deep enough to ruin your car.” Credit: Oliver Jordan via Storyful
