Verulamium Park Lake flooded in St Albans

A pair of wellies are a necessity at Verulamium Park today (Tuesday) where most visitors are trying to avoid floodwater at the beauty spot.
Ongoing recent rainfall has resulted in the park’s lake breaching its banks and flooding paths, right up to the doorway of the nearby public toilets.
While ducks and other waterfowl seem to be enjoying their increased territory, at least one dog, Truffle, was doing his best to avoid getting his paws wet.
His owner carried him across one big puddle, and the Labrador leapt onto park seats to avoid the floodwater.
Other dogs, however, were enjoying romping through the many puddles, as were youngsters – one of whom was determinedly trying to push her scooter through the floodwater.
