Motorists have been urged not to go "flood sightseeing" by police.

It comes as three anti-social driving notices were issued to motorists in flood-hit areas on Wednesday by Thames Valley Police.

Drivers trying to see deluged areas were causing extra damage by creating waves of water which then hit flood-affected properties, the force said.

Residents in Datchet, near Windsor, became concerned after motorists were driving 4x4s through submerged streets.
