Flood alerts have been issued at Welney Wash for the first time this winter.
River levels reached 2.42m this morning, above the flood trigger level for the A1101.
Motorists still attempted to cross the Cambridgeshire-Norfolk border - and photographer Terry Harris managed to capture their efforts from the sky.
The Welney Flood Watch Facebook Group now regularly updates its 4,600 members on the water levels.
Today (December 14) it said the Environment Agency had to confirmed highways were aware of the situation and warning signs will put in place.
The post read: “Welney wash road is now FLOODED and level of water will be displayed on the flashing depth signs once they activate.
“Expect between two to six inches [of water] on the road and currently increasing.”
