Storms and subsequent flooding may have caused havoc in parts of western France but some were only too happy to take advantage of the deluge. Take a look at "flood water surfing" - France's latest sport.

Two cousins from Cap Ferret in the west of France may have invented a new sport this week after the region was hit by flooding.

All they needed was a 4x4 truck, some rope, a surf board and good resistance to the cold weather.

With much of France being hit by flooding this week it would ot be a surprise if their the new sport of flood surfing took off over the next few days.
