Oxford is the latest casualty of the spate of flooding, and having flown over there on Sunday to capture these photos, we thought we’d head back over there today to see how the situation had worsened.

Both Botley Road and Abingdon Road are closed and under water, but Abingdon Road looks more dramatic from the air.

Seen from a different angle, you can also see the backdrop of pylons wading through water.

The boathouses were also flooded, with the water having risen significantly closer to Christ Church since Sunday.

Finally, on the way home, we spotted this badly-affected farm near Otmoor.
