Video - Have you lost a football? - It may be here, stuck at the Weir in Derby during the floods!

During the start of July 2012, Derby like lots of places in the UK suffered torrential downpours, this caused severe flooding.
Here in Derby, Derbyshire, Uk The river Derwent flows through and passes over a large weir.
I visited this weir on Saturday 7th July 2012 to see what the river Derwent was like, As you can see in my video a massive collection of footballs have collected just below the weir, caught in the strong currents.
There are all sorts of footballs and Rugby balls. I notice one says "Ashton United" on it !

If you were unfortunate enough to fall in to the river then I don't think you would be able to get out from those strong currents. Look at that large tree trunk being thrown around.
