A sunken boat was left half submerged in the River Nene at March over the Christmas break following dangerous flash floods.
The small vessel was moored at Nene Parade in the Fenland town when flooding hit the region on Wednesday, December 23.
Pictures emerged on social media of the craft half underwater amongst the other boats at the town centre before it began drifting away.
The Middle Level Commissioners tweeted a photo on December 27 of another boat along the Old River Nene just east of March.
A spokesperson said: “There is a sunken boat - Old River Nene east of March.
