Heavy rain and flooding turned an England soccer stadium into a lake

The perception that it always rains in England may not always be correct. But in this particular case, it definitely fits the bill.

Heavy rain in northern England has caused flooding over recent days, and not even the region's major sporting venues have been safe. The below Vines of Brunton Park, home of Football League Two's Carlisle United, are all the proof you need.

The playing surface was drenched and flooded with roughly a foot of water after the heavy downpour, but as you can see below -- in the series of videos posted by the club -- the grounds crew made quick work of the nasty conditions.

The pitch is now clear after roughly seven hours of work. And though soggy for now, it should be ready to go for Carlisle's Saturday matchup against Portsmouth.







At least the crew had a pleasant rainbow to cheer them up through the process.

See how two two British men dealt with flooding earlier this week while drinking at a Leeds beer garden:
