The incidents were filmed in the city of Orihuela in the province of Alicante located in the eastern Spanish community of Valencia, and were later shared online where they have been widely circulated.

The storm-ravaged province, which registered 126 litres per square metre, has experienced its worst floods since 1997, according to local media.

The cold front has led to adverse weather conditions in 14 Spanish provinces and killed at least six people. Meanwhile, over 4,000 residents have had to be evacuated from their homes.

Widespread floods have caused considerable material damage and the authorities have said that it is too early to estimate the overall cost.

Reports said that Valencia, Alicante, Murcia and Almeria were the worst hit areas.

Netizen ‘Antonio Fermin Andreu Ruiz’ commented: “Bring a fishing rod and you have lunch!”

‘Berenice Ortega Gutierrez’ said: “Wow, a fish! How impressive!”

‘Maruchi Galvez Lorente’ wrote: “I think it is a shame.”
