The underpass in Chatteris was left unrecognisable after yesterday’s flash flooding - but that didn’t stop youngsters on their bikes from having a great time.
Joseph Beer, who captured the moment his friend pedalled through the wet conditions, said: “I couldnt believe it when I got there, it was aswome.
“The first time I went through I got soaked because it was deeper than I thought.”
It was among several areas across Fenland to be hit by heavy thunderstorms, which ripped through towns on Sunday afternoon (August 16) .
Dramatic pictures and videos were then shared on social media showing places that had been hit by the sudden deluge.
The water levels began to subside after a couple of hours, however a yellow weather warning remains in place with the Met Office warning of further heavy showers and thunderstorms until later tonight (Monday August 17).
