From shot-putting in the rain at the 1908 London Olympics to sun- bathing at Wimbledon 2008, every whim of Britain's volatile weather is captured in these 300 photographs drawn from the Press Association archives. Cooling off in the Trafalgar Square fountains during the 1975 heatwave, playing football in the fog at White Hart Lane in 1963, or windsurfing on floodwaters in Yorkshire, 1995 - the pictures are an entertaining look at the weather and how the British deal with it.
