More heavy rain is on the way today - although some parts of Northern Ireland are still under water from the last deluge.

These dramatic aerial photographs capture just how Storm Frank devastated the province.

High-tech lensmen Patrick Hughes and Mark Hillen used drones to show the scale of the flooding from the air.

Mark's top image shows farmland under water on the main Newry to Mayobridge road in Co Down.

Patrick captured a raging River Blackwater at the Salmon Leap, Benburb, in the second, while the third image shows a car stranded on Cathedral Road in Armagh.

The Met Office said today would be cloudy with scattered heavy showers.
