Amazing new pictures show the havoc wreaked by the Christmas floods in Brighouse and Elland

Pictures show sunken canal boats and collapsed bridge

A walk along a canal showed the utter devastation of the Christmas floods.

Brighouse man Stuart Black went for the stroll on the Calder and Hebble Navigation Canal between Brighouse and Elland when he came across this flood-ravaged bridge.

See pictures below of the damage.

It’s called Crowther Bridge and is close to Cromwell Bottom nature reserve.

Stuart also took photos of two sunken canal boats in the same area.

On Boxing Day he captured pictures of Arrow Coaches at Riverside Works in Brighouse which was flooded and later took graphic images of the huge cracks on Elland Bridge which may have to be demolished among other havoc the floods wreaked in the town.
