This was due to very heavy rain deposited on the town by Storm Angus.
This morning we checked on the level of the River Ancholme - consulting the Environment Agency's latest depth reading and employing our own eyesight/camera.
We were pleasantly surprised to discover that there's no cause for concern.
When we looked at 9am the river was running off well towards the sluice South Ferriby, where our river enters the mighty Humber.
This is indicated here by the wet bricks along the wall beside of the White Hart pub beer garden.
It takes time for run-off water from the Wolds to find its way into the Ancholme so we will be keeping an eye on the Agency's depth readings taken in Brigg.
There will be further posts about the Tree of Light on Brigg Blog.
However, we returned to take a picture today, once it had got light and the storm had passed.
Yesterday presented difficult conditions when it came to pointing the camera.
These pictures were taken during yesterday afternoon's Tree of Light dedication service, which took place in a temporary Co-op gazebo, just visible below. Heavy rain was beating down at the time.
