A DRONE user has stitched together a 3D rendering of last week's dramatic canal embankment collapse.

The breach, along the Middlewich branch of the Shropshire Union Canal, has caused an estimated £2 million to £3 million worth of damage.

John Bancroft, who sent the stunning images shown above to the Guardian, has used a drone and Drone Deploy software to provide a three-dimensional picture of the damage.

John explained that the drone hovered above the scene, flying backwards and forwards as it took around 300 photos.

These were then put together to create the final model.
