A pleasure boat fell victim to the heavy weather when it came loose from its moorings and sank today.
But the crew were powerless to do anything about the boat, which was hitting a number of other moored boats as it made its way down in strong currents.
It eventually disintegrated and sank close to Bell Weir Lock.
The crew were at the scene for about an hour and a half.
More than 50 street parties are set to take place this weekend across the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead and the surrounding areas.
An independent report into a Conservative councillor has found a breach of the Royal Borough’s code of conduct in a document seen by the Advertiser.
