    Just reading about the torrential rains that have hit parts of the UK. Bloody Hell. I read someone was washed away. If anyone on here is impacted by this....sheesh...get to higher ground and good luck! Be safe.

    Yorkshire has been hit hard -



    https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-50343977

    A woman has died after becoming submerged in floodwater as parts of England were deluged with a month's worth of rain in a day.

    She was swept away in the early hours and the body was pulled from the River Derwent in Derbyshire at 10:40 GMT.

    In Yorkshire, people have been evacuated from their homes and there is chaos on the road and rail network.

    Six severe warnings - meaning a danger to life - are in place along the River Don in Doncaster.

    The woman was reported to have been swept away by floodwater in Rowsley in the early hours and the body was found about two miles away in Darley Dale.

    Swmbo and I were at a wedding last weekend in Matlock, had to drive through most of the area affected. Think the bride is extremely thankful that everyone didn't have to bring a boat. Attached is a pic of the road towards the venue.

    There is a long-term lesson in all this - don't build houses on flood plains. That's why they're called flood plains. Besides which the soil is silty and quality agricultural land, as I understand it, so should be reserved for farming. However, that requires a government to apply common sense which is obviously out of the question.
