Shirley Armitage

Shirley Armitage in her flooded home in Moorland, Somerset. She had left her home when there was an inch of water, and returning to find the water level so high was an immensely shocking experience for her. At the start of 2014 the UK experienced the wettest winter since records began. At least 6000 properties were flooded, and large areas remained submerged for a number of weeks.
