Three sports students at the University of Chichester grabbed a canoe and went rowing in the floodwater near the campus yesterday after the storm hit the county with heavy rain and strong winds.

Some of the students on board the “Mad River Canoe” were seen wearing life preservers in case they were unlucky enough to fall into the water.

“Some of our Chichester University sport students [made] the most of our brand new boating lake at the end of College Lane.”
