Northamptonshire flooding: Canoeist takes to the water

Pouring rain throughout the day and night has caused many parts of Northamptonshire to flood.

One family had to be rescued from their car in Corby when it got stranded in flood water.

However, other people have resorted to using canoes instead of cars in the extreme weather.

Chad, from Chelveston - who did not give his surname - e-mailed this video to BBC Northamptonshire of him paddling down his road during his lunch break.
