A popular farm attraction has been forced to close on the last day of half-term because of flooding.

Roves Farm in Sevenhampton was looking forward to hosting visiting families hoping to get one more day out before the children return to school.

But that has now been scuppered by the weather. 

Heavy rainfall over Saturday night into Sunday morning has flooded the lane leading into the farm, leaving customers, and even the farm's staff, with no way to travel there via car. 

A spokesperson for Roves Farm said: "We are having to close today as the lane leading to the farm is flooded. It is not the way we had hoped to end half term.

"We apologise to everyone who has pre-booked tickets. If you can please email us at info@rovesfarm.co.uk we can transfer your booking to another day.

"The staff can’t get in either, so any answer phone messages or emails won’t be replied to today. We will get back to you as soon as we can once back in the office.

"Thank you for your continued understanding and support."

The Met Office issued a yellow weather warning for Wiltshire and large parts of the south east on Saturday into Sunday morning.
