According to Met Office statistics on the UK's wet weather during the past year:
- 2012 was the wettest year on record for England
- Third wettest for Wales
- 17th wettest for Scotland
- 40th wettest for Northern Ireland
Even the wet weather - and there was plenty of it - failed to dampen our spirits in a great year for Britain.
It's official, 2012 was the second wettest year on record for the UK.
As 2012 narrowly missed out as the wettest year on record, Met Office figures show it is getting wetter.
