This amazing video captures the moment Piccadilly Station became Piccadilly Falls after a torrential downpour in Manchester.The footage shows rainwater flowing down the steps and flooding a platform on Saturday morning.
The ‘waterfall’ was captured by stunned commuter Nathaniel Hall, 29, who had just got off a train.
It was literally cascading down the stairs, there was an epic rainstorm outside and the rain just started pouring into the station. The video doesn’t really do it justice. It looked just like a river or a waterfall. It flooded the platform and started to fall onto the tracks. Then they put out a warning about the water and closed the platform.
A spokesperson for Network Rail, the rail company in charge of the station, said there had been a drain blockage during the downpour.
It did not disrupt any services for passengers. The issue is being dealt with.
