Water Taxi Required! 

But it's too late for this cab driver, as floods on Queens Drive cause traffic chaos
 
It was a brave motorist who took a trip down Queens Drive in Swindon this morning - or at least in a car with more ground clearance than a Vauxhall Vectra.
 
The poor driver of this cab didn't make it, though, as the torrential overnight downpours caused the main road to flood in places and become impassable.
 
After emergency draining, the road is now open.
 
Quite what happened to the passengers, we are aren't sure?
