Aerial pictures show the extent of flooding around the River Ribble in Preston.

Chris Taylor sent his drone up to capture the flood plain around the Ribble.

It shows how flood defences in Preston and Walton-le-Dale held to protect thousands of homes.

There were a number of properties in Walton-le-Dale affected by flood water but not the widespread flooding there could have been despite the higher river levels.

Video footage from Stephen Melling shows a much calmer Ribble out towards Samlesbury.

All flood warnings and alerts have now been withdrawn for the Preston area.
