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.


In this close-up of the allotments, you can see just how much floodwater now lies on people’s carefully tended vegetable patches.


The railway tracks on the Oxford to Didcot/London line are flooded…


…but we spotted this Virgin train still gingerly trying to get through the flooding anyway.

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.


If you would like to fly over Oxford yourself, from just £50 for a light aircraft like the one we flew to get these pictures, buy a flight voucher here.
