The Yorkshire Evening Post reported tables and chairs to be found outside underwater, with residents across Leeds warned by police to stay inside.
The Venue, in Perth, Scotland, had its roof hacked down. ITV reported three people were injured as a result and emergency services were called to the scene at around 7.30pm on Saturday.
The pub posted on its Facebook page:
Sweep it away
At the Shibden Mill in Halifax, West Yorkshire, video footage shows the team sweeping water away as Storm Ciara’s heavy rain flooded the site.
Thank you to our customers for all the kind words today..... it’s not been our best day thanks also to all the team for mucking in. Unfortunately it breaks our hearts to say we shall not be open today or tomorrow while we try and get sorted. pic.twitter.com/rzMbYEd0qK— ShibdenMill (@ShibdenMill) February 9, 2020
