Abandoned cars on main street - stock photo
On Thursday 19th November 2009 over 31cm of rain fell in 24 hours on the Cumbrian mountains, the single largest rainfall total in the British Isles since records began. It caused unprecedented flooding, with Cockermouth being particularly badly hit after both the Cocker and Derwent burst their banks. The main street was 5 feet underwater and millions worth of damage was caused. This shot shows a flooded car on Cockermouth Main Street, UK.
