He said: “This is the first time I have recorded more than 100mm in a month since May 2014.”

Trev said this was the record amount of rainfall he had recorded in the month of June in his data from 2006.

Peterborough was subject to a Met Office rain weather warning from Monday to Thursday, but the good news for those who are fed up with the showers is the forecast for the next few days is for drier and warmer weather, with temperatures hitting the low teens.
