So City's Champions League against Borussia Monchengladbach didn't go ahead last night due to a storm which is being described as one of the worst Manchester has ever seen. 

We had our photographer in place to capture the atmosphere around the ground but unfortunately the poor sod was one of thousands who got drenched in the build-up to the game that never was. 

He still managed to capture some decent snaps of soggy fans coming to terms with their wasted journey as the news broke:

It'll take more than a piece of chocolate to keep the impending cold at bay...

Some people saw the funny side while others were just miserable...
