In September 2008 the UK was subjected to torrential rainfall which caused extensive flooding. The River Glen, near to Kirknewton in Northumberland, burst it's banks destroying an enclosing embankment. This picture shows the new course of the Glen across what was until now, sheep pasture. The old bed of the river is now dry.

The river has now been returned to its usual course.
