Multiple communities across Reading were hit with extensive flooding as Storm Henk brought with it record-breaking water levels along the Thames.

As well as communities such as Caversham and Purley, huge open areas of land in Shinfield and Arborfield were affected. In some areas, this caused huge problems including flooded homes and power cuts for days on end.

Our Camera Club readers reminisced about the floods in Reading in the 60s and 70's and how they affected communities.

David Turner posted several photos that were taken during his childhood from different areas in Arborfield and Shinfield.

The pictures show people and cars trudging through the water as they try and make their way to their destinations.

David said: "Floods are very much in the news at the moment with the opinion blaming global warming. In the Reading area, flooding has always been an issue. The A327 through Shinfield and Arborfield for instance was always flooded.

"The fields around Hall Farm was the first to flood from the River Loddon then spreading to the main road A327."

The pictures also show the flooding at Ham Farm in Arborfield where the fields are saturated with water
