As the article says, pure luck (hence the rubbish crop on the right). Yes, it does look a bit too perfect, in fact the agency who sold it to the Mail rang me to check that it wasn't a set up, as it looked too perfect.

With such clear evidence there may be a court case to answer, certainly a follow up story.
With heavier rains for the future and less maintenance on the roads this scene is likely to become more common. Set up camera and wait...

This was literally the first frame of my cars splashing through water shots. Finally called it a wrap at 14;00, very, very wet and cold. The cameras and lenses are all now relaxing on microfibre blankets in front of the fire.
Shame the driver did not get seen by the police as this is an offence (I know it can be difficult not to drench someone when driving in atrocious weather conditions)
Great capture all the same

I understand that the dog walker has made a complaint.
