Welcome to Stratton-St-Margaret-on-Thames! 

Town game abandoned as Swindon 'storm' causes chaos across town
 
In echoes of the floods of 2007, this was the scene in Stratton at 3pm this afternoon after a deluge caused traffic disruption across town.
 
The hour-long downpour even caused the Swindon Town home game versus Bristol Rovers to be abandoned mid-way through the second-half due to dangerous playing conditions.
 
 
 
And similarly, this was the scene on the Highworth Road near the Supermarine Roundabout...
 
 
Rovers supporters drenched
 
Four Rovers supporters, who got absolutely soaked along with hundreds of others while standing on the uncovered Stratton Bank during the match, then stripped off at a nearby launderette in Manchester Road in attempt to get dry.
