Rainfall has been unprecedented

Today marks the third anniversary of some of the worst flooding ever to have hit the Border region. In 2009, flood waters devastated areas including Cockermouth, Keswick and Dumfries.

Three years on, we've just experienced one of the wettest summers ever recorded and we're being warned more flooding is in store this winter. Scottish Borders Council have said that it is on a scale which they are not used to dealing with.
