A couple have been left "devastated" after their narrowboat sank in high water caused by the recent rain.
Carolann and Trevor Forman found their boat "The Merlot" almost completely submerged at Thurmaston Marina in Leicester after returning from a funeral in Wales.
The boat had been moored with its front nearest to the marina wall. Water levels in the marina rose so high that the rope buffer became hooked onto the top of the wall.
When water levels dropped, the front of the boat remained attached to the wall, but forcing the rear into the water which then flooded the entire boat.
Yesterday the water was pumped out and the narrowboat was re-floated, but the couple say almost everything they own has been destroyed.
