Ruthin and Mold floods remembered 10 years on

Ruthin's blogger has been remembering "difficult times" as today marks the 10th anniversary of the worst of the town's floods.
It rained for what seemed like most of October, causing damage and misery for residents and businesses [as Wales Today TV reporter Matthew Richards found out in this online archive film].
By winter 2003, residents had their fingers crossed the work would be completed in case the heavy rain returned.
Some people were flooded four times in as many years.
People had to be shuttled to high ground via RNLI boats as the town centre was evacuated.
Although alleviation schemes were completed, further improvements were still being discussed in early 2010.
