23rd August 2020. Very heavy rain in Durham

Above is the scene from the Bandstand by the River Wear in Durham on Sunday 23rd August 2020. The heavy deluge dropped 9mm of rain in 10 minutes on Durham and it’s surroundings. That’s a rate of 54mm per hour, which is a proper dowpour.

In the town, the narrow streets were rapidly turned into rivers and driving visibility was virtually nil.
