Flooding: Kris Cruisers in Datchet shut for business

A boat yard in Datchet closed up today after it was affected by flooding as water continued to flow downstream from the west.

Kris Cruisers in Southlea Road shut after the offices and yard flooded.

Owner Chris Clark, said: "I am standing in three to four inches of water in my office and boats are underwater.

"It will have an negative impact on our business and will put us a few weeks behind as we will have to clear the mess up."

Parts of Datchet were the worst hit in the Royal Borough and low-lying property owners are on red alert with more water expected.

Council environment officers are ready to hand out sandbags to home owners at risk close to the river, but the Environment Agency (EA) said today no properties had yet been flooded.

A flood warning for Slough Road, Eton Road, Datchet Golf Club, Datchet Common, Horton Road and Frogmore is still in place.

And a flood alert is still active for all of Datchet, Old Windsor, Wraysbury, and Horton, and the EA said levels are expected to rise seven to eight inches by tomorrow.

Yesterday Datchet Golf Club announced it was shut after the course was badly affected and looked as if it was a lake.
