June 2012 was the wettest month since records began in 1910. The Meteorological Office figures revealed that 145.3mm of rain fell over Britain during a cold, gloomy month with Britain received 145.3mm (5.7 inches) of rain within the month.
June 2012 saw extended, prolonged rainfall and short but exceptionally heavy showers, with flash floods turning roads and streets into rivers.
