The village of Glenridding was repeatedly battered by storms in December and January, causing widespread devastation across the area for both families and businesses.

Six months later, the Environment Agency is highlighting how topography remains a key flooding cause for the village.

Topography refers to how the land is shaped.

The mountainous valley is extremely steep, all the way from Glenridding up to Helvellyn. And there's a very short distance for the water to travel off the valley before it hits Glenridding.

It's the combination of a relatively short distance, coming from the extremely steep valley sides.

On December 6 2015, Charles Sproson from Mountain Run, captured this dramatic close up footage of the landslide at Red Tarn Beck on his mobile:

You could just feel it coming through the floor. We could feel it in the floor of our house, you could feel it outside, you could feel it in the garden. You could just feel the thumping boulders trundling past.
