Summer is here – or so they say!
Residents of Yorkshire who were looking forward to hot, dry weather this summer have instead been taking to Twitter to show the damp squib that has arrived instead.
Rain has continues falling across the region today and no improvement in the forecast is expected until Thursday at the earliest. So pack away that BBQ set, grab yourself a mug of hot cocoa and entertain yourself by looking at these images of the soaked white rose county.
