YORK'S drainage failings have again been exposed today, after a torrential downpour left roads flooded.
Heavy but relatively brief rain fell across York around noon today, and many drains have been overwhelmed.
The Morrisons store in Acomb is also partly flooded, but remains open.
Readers have since sent in pictures from Acomb and Holgate, where there is a large amount of standing water in several main roads.

A report to city leaders in 2012 said generations of neglect and underinvestment had left York's drains unable to cope with even minor flooding.
