Despite weeks of heavy rain that inundated the surrounding areas, the town of Pickering in North Yorkshire stayed safe from the floods simply by working with rather than against nature.
Pickering flooded in 2007 but couldn't get funding for a flood barrier. Instead a smaller, and cheaper reservoir to store water and let it out slowly was built further up Pickering beck.
In addition, 167 small, leaky dams were built out of logs and branches and trees were planted.

A sheep farmer has told of how the floods have devastated his livelihood as he lost 70 sheep and his fields were contaminated.
Andy Dyer is just one of many businesses in the North of the country ruined in the recurrent floods.
He said he has "never seen anything like it" and the water levels were a foot higher than in 2005, ruining his fields in Penrith.
He said the parliamentary committee should sit in the flood-hit towns to "understand that all manner of businesses in rural communities are hit, and families as well".
