Sitting atop his taxi surrounded by flood waters, this man was one of hundreds caught out as Scotland, northern England and Northern Ireland were hit by heavy rain yesterday.
This scene was captured in a car park in Greenock, Scotland as some parts of Scotland were battered by a fortnight's rain in just 24-hours.
The deluges forced roads to close and train cancellations, while several schools were forced to close due to the rising waters.

It was nothing, a storm in a teacup compared to the storms they have in a lot of parts of the world.
