The Wash Road has re-opened. Picture: Paul Tibbs

This spectacular drone picture was taken by photographer Paul Tibbs of the A1101 Wash Road at Welney which has re-opened after several weeks of closure.

Motorists faced a long diversion to the Ely area while the road was closed, but some risked driving through the deep water with emergency services having been called out to a number of rescues.

The road is now open and the dramatic picture shows the scale of the flooding.
