Devastation in the Dales

Devastating flooding in Swaledale, with floods in Wensleydale also. A terrible sight to see, with floodwaters washing through homes, destroying roads, vehicles and buildings and potentially killing animals trapped in flooded fields. The worst floods in living memory: in less than an hour the rain was pouring off the hillsides, forming rivers that had never had rivers before.

The full picture of the destruction will become clearer in the coming days.
