A main road into Castleford was blocked over the weekend as flooding hit the north of England.

A man was filmed riding a jet ski on Barnsdale Road near Allerton Bywater while cars became trapped in the water on Saturday.

The road was closed and buses were re-routed during the incident.

It was reopened later on Saturday.
