A half-sunken boat has been spotted on the banks of the Thames today following rising water levels at Sonning Bridge.

This comes as Storm Nelson ripped through the UK yesterday causing high-speed winds and downpours.

A picture captured earlier today shows the medium-sized boat has tipped onto its side and is now partly submerged underwater.

The boat appears to be moored in Sonning-on-Thames alongside other vessels.

Due to high water levels, boats have been unable to pass through the bridge and are docked at Sonning.
