People have had to abandon their cars after flash floods in the North East - only to find they've been towed away

Many of the main routes across the North East were littered with abandoned cars this morning (Fri 29th June)

Northumbria Police have arranged for the cars to be towed away as they can be blocking highways and main roads which can cause problems for other people trying to use the roads now that the flooding's gone down.

But in a statement, the police told Capital:
No one will be charged for the recovery of their vehicles abandoned due to the flooding.

Anyone with any questions should contact the force's vehicle recovery unit by emailing:
