Flash floods as weather wreaks havoc

United Kingdom
June 24, 2007
A North town centre was cut off by flash floods as torrential rain hit the region yesterday.
Elsewhere in the region the astonishing downpour flooded roads and caused a soggy start to the Hoppings fair in Newcastle.
It was left to the stout-hearted to brave the conditions, which are expected to continue this week. Forecasters predicting the equivalent of a month's worth of rain - 7.5cm (3in) - will fall in the next 24 hours.
Flooding has also caused problems on the railways, disrupting the journeys of thousands of passengers.
