Tyne in flood

With more rain expected the Tyne was already bursting its Banks between Hexham and Wylam today. Road from Ovingham to Bywell behind trees on left above flooded and closed with water up to the roadside at Stocksfield
The water level already up to the underside of the cutwaters at Bywell Bridge and raging through the arches
Water up to the walls of St Peters Church Bywell where a manic Cormorant sped down the river backwards and a Dipper made best of searching the flotsam for food
Corbridge where the bridge was closed and the flood barrier looked like it was going to be overtopped with severe consequences for people living between the river and station
