This month marks 40 years since the River Taff in Cardiff burst its banks, leaving parts of the city underwater.
It began with a spell of wet weather which saw river levels rise until on December 27th, 1979, parts of the city - including Canton, Pontcanna, Grangetown and Riverside - became submerged by floodwaters.
Thousands of homes were flooded and many residents had to be evacuated, just days after Christmas.
A circus in Sophia Gardens had to evacuate its animals to a safer location across the city.
The flooding brought widespread disruption and prompted a series of preventative works, including the construction of the Cardiff Bay barrage.
