Flood Rained Off

Poole, Dorset
A service to bless a Noah's Ark wall hanging had to be abandoned in Poole when the heavens opened flooding part of the youngsters' school.
Pupils from Baden-Powell and St Peter's Middle School created the 11ft by 9ft work of art for St Peter's Church, where it was due to be blessed by the Bishop of Sherborne, Rt Rev Tim Thornton.
However three inches of water flooding into the school meant head teacher Geoff Pike cancelled the service, but classes carried on while the water was pumped out.
Rev Roger Bayldon said: "It's quite ironic that the hangings depict Noah's Ark."
