Shock horror They were there and not in small numbers, in fact an entire regiment was in the area. Greatful civilians welcomed these troops and the help they would provide, but then a micra car bravely navigated the remaining obstacle. The leading convoy followed on, leaving at the remaining stranded civilians bemused. On the plus side, some of the cut off convoys had some land rovers (luxury eh?), which they used to help rescue a cut off policeman. Also they took many pictures of floods for future powerpoint presentations.
