Joining hands to remember floods

Tewkesbury

Hundreds of people held hands in a chain around Tewkesbury Abbey to mark the anniversary of the floods that hit the town.

Thousands of people had to leave their homes when rivers burst their banks after heavy rain in July 2007.

And lots of them are still living in caravans and temporary housing because their homes haven't been fixed yet.

Hundreds of people attended a service at the Abbey before joining hands around it at midday.
