10 years since the Boscastle Floods

15th August 2014

This morning we cast our minds back to the 16th August 2004, when idyllic Boscastle hit the headlines when it was devastated by flash floods.

The waters came storming down the valley, devastating the small village and sweeping cars into the ocean. Meanwhile, trees were ripped up and houses and businesses left in tatters.

Iconic images of people being airlifted from the roofs of their homes were beamed across the world, as Boscastle became the top story...

But luckily, no-one lost their life on that fateful day - thanks to the fast response of the emergency services and RAF.

Boscastle has now recovered, and is once again a thriving community - regaining it's beautiful charm... a million miles away from the devastation it once saw back in 2004.
