Tina Allardice got these photos and videos as she faced an anxious wait as the River Ellen in Maryport rose on Wednesday.

Allotments were inundated although the damage was not as great as during Storm Desmond in December 2015.

Maryport remained relatively dry during this week's torrential rain but the river began to rise rapidly into the afternoon.

Residents on Selby Terrace complained last year that not enough was being done to ensure the river was cleared of debris brought down by Storm Desmond.
