Shocking floods in Perth city centre
Perth has been hit by flooding exactly one year after homes and properties were damaged by heavy rain.
Drains around the North Inch and Bell’s Sports Centre burst after rain continued all day across central Scotland, flooding the path and rugby pitches and creating a small loch.
Aarron Sharpe, who took the photographs, lives on a street adjoining the north inch and is amazed by the weather.
“There are fire engines pumping away water from houses and flats so they don’t flood.
“To me, this is just evidence that global warming is getting worse. There needs to be less finger-pointing and more action.
“The fact that this is one year on to the day just seems to prove this will become a regular summer sight in Scotland. It’s terrifying.”
Similar sights were seen in Fife, with both Kirkcaldy and Dunfermline suffering the effects of the rainfall.

Ukweather.com issued amber weather warnings for central Tayside and Fife, as well as the Lothian borders and Strathclyde.
They predicted persistent rain for the rest of the day, which is expected to move south towards the borders. Localised flooding, as seen in the pictures, is to be common in the amber areas.
