UK Floods: Video Footage Of Britain's Extreme September Weather

Britain has been hit with the most extreme September weather for decades, with some areas receiving over a month's worth of rain in a matter of days.

Hundreds of people have been evacuated from their homes, cars have been swamped and abandoned and road and rail travel severely disrupted as rain lashed down and rivers burst their banks.

Not surprisingly, it hasn't taken long for videos of the dramatic events to wash up on YouTube.

Here we've put together a selection of startling short films made by amateurs and professionals alike that capture the chaos.

The footage shows one half of a dual-carriageway that's been turned into a bubbling river, a town in Scotland covered in sea foam and rescuers negotiating residential roads with inflatables.
