VIDEO: Janette Hyde

STORM Ciara failed to dampen the whole of the county's spirits over the weekend as daredevil kayakers were spotted on the River Dee.

Llangollen resident, Janette Hyde, captured a video of the four kayakers in action.

She said: "My husband and I were just walking over the bridge for our Sunday papers, so definitely timed it well."

The video received mixed reviews on Facebook, with some calling the water sports enthusiasts 'mad' and 'brilliant', whilst others saying they were 'risking their lives'.

Several parts of South Denbighshire were badly affected by Storm Ciara over the weekend.

Natural Resources Wales (NRW) issued a flood warning in the Upper Dee Valley, stretching all the way from Llanuwchllyn down to Llangollen.

Certain parts of Corwen were left flooded following a heavy downpour of rain and a flood warning was also issued for the River Dee.

Speaking on Sunday, an NRW spokesperson said: " In addition to the area detailed, some localised flooding problems may result from surface water. Further rainfall is forecast today, and conditions are expected to deteriorate.

"Flood defences are now in operation and the situation on site is being constantly monitored.

"River levels at Bala and Corwen are rising and are expected to do so for the next several hours. Also, lake levels at Llyn Tegid are rising and are expected to do so for the rest of the day.

In Llangollen, motorists were urged by Police to avoid the B5400 Pontfadog betweeen Glyn Traian school and Llwyn y Gelli wood due to flooding and damage caused by the wing and rain.

Llangollen Road from Ruabon to Llangollen was also flooded and deemed impassable.
