Many thanks to Irina for spotting the following pictures covering the ongoing problems in Gloucestershire with the recent flooding.

First we have Gordon Brown flying into Gloucester by helicopter. He is about to shake hands with the Chief Constable of Glos. police, I believe.

In this and the following photo, you can see where Ira and I used to live, in Bourton on the Water. Perhaps that should be Bourton in the Water?

What used to be Sandford park. This area was turned into a flood defence sector instead. I’m guessing it wasn’t designed to cope with quite this much water?
