November's record rainfall caused havoc in Cumbria – and led to the sinking of more than 20 boats on Windermere

November’s “once-in-a-thousand-year” floods in Cumbria hit the headlines for all the human suffering they caused, but there was plenty of pain of the boat kind as well.

MBM has been sent a series of photos of some of the damage caused at Windermere Marina Village, where more than 20 boats were sunk by the rapidly rising water.

We challenge you not to wince when you take a look at these photos.
