Operation to save Toddbrook Reservoir from start to finish - in pictures

As well as the multi-agency team involved in the operation, they also capture the moment evacuated residents were finally able to return home on Wednesday afternoon, as well as visits by Prime Minister Boris Johnson and Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn.
