Bede’s School minibus stranded after floods near Alfriston

WITNESSES said students were forced to wade through water after a minibus ran aground on a flooded country road.

The Bede’s School minibus in Upper Dicker was unable to escape the flood waters after the driver attempted to travel down the White Way between Cuckmere Haven and Alfriston.

Eyewitnesses claim that students at the school had to wade through the water to escape the van, one of several vehicles stranded in the street on Thursday, November 17.

A photo taken at 9.30am this morning shows the bus was still stuck after the flooding.

A garbage truck was also stranded in the flooding caused by heavy rain overnight.

The minibus is partially submerged in water up to the vehicle’s wheel wells.

The vehicle is lying in the middle of the road next to the garbage truck, which was also unable to wade through the water.

Roads in Alfriston have been subject to significant flooding following recent weather which caused the River Cuckmere to overflow.

A red flood warning has now been issued for the village.

A yellow weather warning for rain was also issued for the area earlier this week. Bede’s School minibus stranded after floods near Alfriston
