Wettest ever winter: Infographic shows extreme weather of early 2014 in figures
This has officially been the wettest winter since records began almost 250 years ago.
What seemed at the time to be never-ending rainfall has left chaos in its wake, with thousands of properties affected by flooding.
Disruption to travel services has also had detrimental consequences on business and tourism.
The Met Office said south-east and central southern England, some parts of which were badly affected by the flooding, received almost two-and-a-half times their average rainfall.
This infographic from www.andrews-sykes.com shows the toll the extreme weather has taken on the country, including rainfall figures by region and predicted costs.
