Charles Bretnall says the Boat House on Derwentwater in Keswick in the Lake Districk - which is normally let out - was far from desirable after the downpour.

Robin Tatler's risotto van was submerged under several feet of water following showers at Innerleithen where the River Tweed burst its banks. He had been hoping to feed people taking part in a mountain biking event which was a washout.

Paul Rodgers from Greenock took this picture from his front window. "The water is seven feet deep in our front garden - it's usually only a few inches after rainfall."
