Eel Spotted Swimming Outside East Sussex Coffee Shop During Severe Flooding

An eel was seen swimming in floodwater outside of an East Sussex coffee shop during severe flooding in the area on January 16.

Footage by Erika Williams shows the eel making its way through the water outside Jempson’s Cafe in Hastings town centre, after heavy flooding caused parts of the area to close.

“We are working with our emergency services partners on several areas of flooding in the town centre and Alexandra Park,” Hastings Borough Council tweeted. “Some areas of the town are closed, including the park.” Credit: Erika Williams via Storyful
