Social media posts from drivers report problems across a wide area - the road from Larbert towards Airth was said to be flooded in places with very deep water.

A driver heading from Grangemouth to Denny “sauled on water” in “horrendous” conditions on the slip road off to Bonnybridge.

The road from Larbert to Stirling was described as “a nightmare”, and roads around Camelon and into Slamannan were also said to be among those badly affected.
