I WRITE concerning the coverage of the flooding at Welney, as I am one of the parents driving the additional miles to school everyday.

The children are unable to attend any after-school clubs, play with friends after school or at weekends.

I am a governor of the school and have had to miss two meetings already because of the flooded road and will be missing a full governors' meeting again next week.

The cost of this avoidable disruption to me personally is £120 a month in terms of fuel. Plus time and wear and tear on the car.

I would like to know if there is anyway of reclaiming this additional cost. And why the road was miraculously clear the two weeks of the Christmas break?

I knew about the road when I moved here but in the last four years there has been negligible disruption. I would like some answers not excuses.
