The Christmas Eve Floods, Diss, Norfolk - 24th December 2020

Heavy rain falls on sodden ground, and as usual the Waveney river running along the edge of Diss floods, however it's much worse than usual as a bike ride in to town reveals. The junction of Victoria and Sawmills Roads is particularly bad, isolating the new-ish care home opposite Desira garage, but luckily a dude is on hand with a high-wheeled lorry to help ferry staff through the floods.
