Photo by @shonephoto (Robbie Shone ) | Quickly rising and fast flowing water engulfs us both. We see a British cave explorer fighting to stay afloat whilst struggling to hold onto the wall so as not to be pulled downstream too quickly. The Whirlpool in Speedwell Cavern (Derbyshire, UK ) is notorious for dangerously high levels of fast flowing water in periods of very wet weather, similar to what they have experienced recently within this part of England.
