of the flood and the ongoing recovery efforts by volunteers and professionals
alike.

28/12/15: 2 days after the #River #Aire #flooded at #Kirkstall, #Leeds, I went to photograph and film the aftermath. Here is the #Goit, which was responsible for much of the flooding on Kirkstall Road. The Goit flows from the Aire (usually as a stream) at Kirkstall, it follows the path of Kirkstall Road, then rejoins the Aire at #Armley. Here it has receded greatly from the torrent that it was on Boxing Day. #water #reflection #recovery #emergency #flood #floods #flooding #Yorkshire #England #travel #tourism #tourist #life #nature #news #weather #ukweather #IgersLeeds

East Street Flooding, Leeds City Centre, West Yorkshire, England - 26th ...



This film was taken last night (26/12/15) around the East Street area of Leeds, and features flooding coming through Turlow Court, flooded car parks, and flooding at the East Street / Marsh Lane junction. This film was supposed to be the last few minutes of the Leeds floods video that I uploaded yesterday, but unfortunately YouTube seems to have corrupted it, so here it is.

Leeds City Centre Floods, Leeds, West Yorkshire, UK - 26th December, 2015



Boxing Day floods in Leeds city centre, as the River Aire bursts its banks...

#York's Mumbai Lounge provided last night's sustenance, and I have to say that the quality of the #food there was excellent. It was a little on the pricey side, but I would say that it was worth it. #foodporn #curry #bhaji #kebab #samosa #Indian #korma #chicken #restaurant #yummy #travel #tourism #tourist #adventure #explore #life #Instascran

The #Maltings in #York is another favourite #pub. A traditional #ale house with some great #beers on #cask and #keg. I love the #sign outside (despite the mis-spelling of you're). #beer #stout #funny #words #Yorkshire #England #travel #tourism #tourist #adventure #explore #life

#York's 'House of Trembling Madness' is an incredible venue with a terrific range of #beers. Downstairs is a bottle shop, upstairs is a #pub. Very cool place. #beer #pint #Brewdog #drink #IPA #decor #design #traditional #Yorkshire #England #travel #tourism #tourist #adventure #explore #life
