Harrold Community Fire Station’s drone training this week created an incredible opportunity to film the flooded bridge in the village.

The Carlton to Harrold bridge was at least a foot under water according to the road marker after heavy rain this week.

In a post on the Harrold Community Fire Station’s Facebook page, they said, “During Drone training we took the opportunity to take some pictures of the floods.

“Our advice is to always avoid driving through flood water. Allow extra time for diversions.”

The River Great Ouse regularly breaks its banks during heavy rainfall, but it’s not often it’s captured so spectacularly.
