Flooding across the borough is affecting people setting out to vote in the EU referendum this morning.

All polling stations remain open but Havering Council has said that Forest Row Centre polling station, Lodge Lane, Collier Row, is accessible by foot although Lodge Lane is closed.

If you tell officials you are going to vote access will be allowed.

Roads across the borough are congested and closed after the River Rom burst its banks.

This story will be updated through the day.
