Videos of the impact of Storm Babet across Ireland and the United Kingdom have hit social media in recent days, with many farmers demonstrating the impact of the torrential rain.

One such video, recorded in Holme-on-Spalding-Moor, Yorkshire, England, shows a John Deere tractor and heavy load being driven through deep floodwater.

The tractor driver is seen driving the machine into the deep floods, which rose almost above the front tyres.

Regardless of the floods, the John Deere is seen making it to drier road by the end of the recording.

Wheat fields

Elsewhere, Nottingham farmer John Hawthorne posted a video of his flooded wheat fields, with a trio of rowers taking to a boat across the land.
