This June was the wettest since records began, with double the average rain falling during the month, the Met Office said today.
Provisional figures showed the UK received 145.3mm (5.7 inches) during June, beating the previous record of 136.2mm (5.4 inches) seen in June 2007 - and more than double the average for June of 64.9mm (2.5 inches)
It is the second month this year to see record-breaking amounts of rain, after this April became the wettest in the records dating back more than a century to 1910....
...Last month was also the one of the dullest Junes on record, with just 119.2 hours sunshine, only slightly less miserable than June 1987 when a record low of 115.4 hours was recorded.
And the UK has experienced the coolest June since 1991, with average temperatures of 12.3C (54F).
