- Some Londoners could be seen in a video walking on chairs in a flooded street and many social media users have shared their opinion
- In the video that was shared on Instagram, the pedestrians took turns to mount the chairs as others stepped into the puddle
- Some social media users felt that instead of mounting the chairs to cross the road, everyone could have just stepped into the floodwater
A video has emerged on social media in which pedestrians in England could be seen walking on chairs to avoid getting into a street flood.
In the video that was shared on Instagram by @ladbible, the pedestrians queued to make use of the chairs to cross the flood to the other side of the road.
Some could, however, be seen stepping into the puddle because it wasn't too deep.
Those who refused to step into the floodwater didn't want their shoes or socks to get wet, hence the stress of making use of chairs.
