Re-float your boat

Camera-shy Darren's take on the floods

It’s been so busy with the floods! I’m here today to get this boat re-floated. The water sent it onto the other side of the canal and nobody could get to it. The stern was left on land after the water subsided. We’ve got the crane ready and now we’re just waiting for the TV cameras.

Do you think it’ll flood again with all this rain at the moment?

It all depends on the river and what that does. The forecast is bad for tomorrow, it’s a warning.

Oh no! You don’t want to take my photo, do you?
