Many other roads had large amounts of standing waters, a DoI spokesperson adding: 'The Department is currently receiving a high volume of telephone calls regarding some motorists not driving to the conditions.

'As you are all aware there is a lot of standing water due to the sheer volume of rainfall and this is not likely to subside until after high tide, which is 1.15pm today.'
