1st May - Today's News: Britain's Wettest April Since 1910
After Monday gave us the warmest day of the month, it's back to dreich dampness today. Nationally, April was the wettest on record, though only just wetter here than 2008 and not nearly as wet as August 2010 (let alone July 2007!) and the Avon has only flooded a few riverside gardens - as it does most years.
Overall for Britain and NI, April is the wettest month for 100 years (by which they actually mean the wettest April since records began in 1910. Though for much of England it was only the wettest since April 2000.... )
And today there are more flood warnings after heavy rain across England
