Runners waist-high in water

One of the runners in the mountain marathon sent the BBC video of competitors wading through waist-high water.

Jeremy Webb, who filmed the footage himself, wrote: "We have just come back from the mountain marathon in the Lake District...

"I think we were about the only competitors taking video as we went.

"I shared the walk back to camp with three friends, and all of us are very experienced mountaineers and none of us had seen conditions like that before.

"Even on the walk back to the cars on the road, people were nearly getting blown off their feet, so you can imagine how difficult conditions were on the tops."
