Riverside Wall in Sheffield Flattened by Raging Floodwater

Heavy rain brought severe flooding to parts of northern England on November 7 and 8, with local media reporting of home evacuations and transport chaos.

This video taken on Friday morning shows the damage done to a wall along the River Don in Sheffield.

A video by the same person the day before showed water flowing rapidly along the river and pushing against the wall.

The South Yorkshire Fire Service said Friday it had fielded 1,200 emergency calls and rescued 120 people during the floods.

The Environment Agency, meanwhile, issued six severe flood warnings. Credit: Jeremy Dennis via Storyful
