The main street of Cockermouth five feet underwater, with flooded cars, Cumbria, UK. Cockermouth was flooded in 2005, in 2009 when this image was taken and in 2015. After the 2009 floods the Environment Agency spent millions building flood defences for Cockermouth and told the residents they would protect them form a once in a hundred years storm. Four years later they were completely over topped by the Storm Desmond floods.
