Bottom of Norfolk Park got flooded as per usual but still driveable if you are careful. No doubt under the bridge at Heeley Bottom too.

It was The S*n HHR so could have been a picture of anywhere (desert regions excluded.....)

I doubt they would have bothered to photoshop the license plates.

The photo's were in the Daily Mail too. It was Ecclesall Road near the old Sorting Office. There used to be an area of waste ground there on the left hand side of the road, heading into town, but I think its been built on now. That's probably why it flooded, more buildings, drains not improved and can't cope with a heavy downpour.

Old Sorting Office at Banner Cross? Where was the waste ground?

Hmmm... :huh:


If it's "on the left hand side of the road, heading into town"...
