After one of the wettest summers ever record, and a warning there could be more flooding this winter, people living in Cumbria and southern Scotland are being warned to expect more similar weather in future.
Figures show more than 700 properties in Cumbria were flooded during an eight week period this summer. The Environment Agency say 1 in 11 homes in the county are at risk from flooding. In parts of southern Scotland, three times the normal amount of rain fell. 1 in 22 properties are at risk.
The findings come on the third anniversary of the floods that hit west Cumbria and southern Scotland in 2009, flooding more than 1000 homes.
