Cycled in today. The river in York is very high and was across the approach to the millenium bridge.

rather lack of it, of the motorcar in such conditions, set off upon his gleaming steed to negotiate
the aftermath of The Deluge. Witness reported that he did not get very far before disappearing, Atlantis-
