It has been revealed that one of the rainiest places in the country is right here in Cornwall.

Truro has made the top five in a UK's wettest cities list.

More than 1,000mm of rain falls in the Duchy's hot spot each year.

Using data available from the Met Office, Freeflush ranked cities based on total annual rainfall.

Cardiff took the top spot thanks to experiencing 1152 mm of rainfall annually.

Other cities that made the top five include St Davids, Glasgow and Bangor.

The infographic also shows which cities you are less likely to need an umbrella in.

London has been named the driest city and is closely followed by Cambridge, Derry and Ely.
