Shocking drone footage has emerged that shows the full extent of the damage caused by Storm Dennis at Pontypridd Lido.

Pontypridd, home to the National Lido of Wales, was one of the areas worst hit by the storm over the weekend.

The main high street was left looking like what can only be described as a river and homes, businesses and cars were left submerged in water.

The bridge leading from the old Marks & Spencer building to Ynysangharad War Memorial Park was pictured looking battered and covered in branches.
