Torrential downpours struck yesterday afternoon, causing flooding across Royston, with areas including Garden Walk left under water.

Melbourn Street was completely flooded, with the water unable to run clear due to blocked drains. Crow reader Glen Stanway captured the picture above.

The storm also caused a power cut in South Cambridgeshire, with villages including Abington Pigotts affected.

  • Your picture of the flood in Melbourn Street may well have been tweeted by this person mentioned but the photograph was taken by Craig Ransley from his car while driving up there...
