December's flooding ruined thousands of homes and businesses across Cumbria and the south of Scotland, and for one man it also claimed his life's work.
Inside Colin Bell's garage in Kendal were three rare classic cars, which he'd spent years trying to afford, and then maintaining.
All of them were damaged by the floods - the Rolls Royce Silver Shadow and Rolls Royce Silver Cloud were both written off.
Colin's real pride and joy, the 1958 Dodge Royal, was also damaged.
He'd wanted the car since he was 14, and there are only around 20 in the country.
Colin pleaded with the insurance company not to scrap the Dodge and spent five and a half months rescuing its flooded components.
Colin says he'll miss the two Rolls Royce models, which he's worked on for 40 years, but that the worst thing about the floods was "seeing my partner's face when the water came up."
