Stunning images of flooded countryside in one part of the Cambridgeshire Fens have been captured on camera. 

Jason Cox decided to use his spare time by showing the extent of the recent flooding at Sutton Gault on Wednesday, December 30 with his drone just before sunset. 

Jason, a surfacing operative at Aggregate Industries, filmed the scene with a DJI Mavic Pro which he has been flying for six to seven years. 

“I usually just fly down the local field near me," he said. "It's usually a lovely sunset this time of year, plus the floods gave me a good excuse to go and film and take a few photos."
