During the June Sheffield flood, Sheffield Wednesday's Hillsborough Stadium pitch was heavily submerged.
Adverse weather, including significant rainfall, meant water levels in the adjacent River Don were up to 15 feet higher than normal, and the water was streaming into the stadium before running back out and flooding Penistone Road North.
Motorists ended up evacuating their cars and pedestrians trying to get from around the stadium to Herries Road and Halifax Road were forced to either wade through deep, fast flowing water or abandon their journeys altogether.
