Morpeth Floods, September 2008.
These photos were taken when the River Wansbeck burst its banks in September 2008, causing severe flooding in Morpeth. The floods were the worst since records began.
Views were taken from Telford Bridge, Carlisle Park, the Sports Centre car park, the Clock Tower and Chantry area.
