THE flooding in Henley gave one man a new place to enjoy his hobby.
Henry Hepburne-Scott spent about an hour flying his model seaplane over Mill Meadows last Friday.
The 43-year-old donned wellington boots and waded through several inches of water out on to the field.

He stood near the Leichlingen Pavilion with his remote control and practised making his model take off, land and fly in circles.
As the plane picked up speed on the water’s surface, flocks of Canada geese scattered into the air to avoid it.
