As the rain continues to fall, people in Brighouse have found a unusual way to make use of the extra water.

Brighouse company Faith PR captured this video of a man deciding to clean his 4x4 vehicle in the ford.

A flood alert has been put in place for the River Calder.

The alert covers the river and its tributaries from Todmorden to Brighouse.

An Environment Agency spokesperson said: “Persistent rain is moving in from the west and is expected to fall over higher ground from this morning onwards.

“This is expected to continue throughout the day.”
