Arkell said: "We've made an early decision as there is no point delaying the inevitable. We now have standing water and it's pouring with rain.

"We've had 81 millimetres of rain since last Wednesday and that's a metre since April.

"Our next meeting is on December 11, so hopefully things improve between now and then."
