Guess what flooded, and guess what got stuck in it?

I’d resolved not to become an under-bridge-flood anorak … but then I had to divert around the Mays Meadow lake again today.

Not only had the drains failed and the hollow under the railway bridge turned into an extension of Belfast Lough, but a car was marooned with its window open (means of escape?), headlights still on and horn blaring. The owner will have a flat battery as well as soggy footwells!

A great start to someone’s week :(
