Flood in Oxford, United Kingdom

Oxford residents hold a protest blaming climate change for Britain's worst floods in 60 years on July 25, 2007.

The city's famed university mostly escaped the brunt of the unusual floods, although officials did stack sandbags around the music department as water pushed through the Thames Valley.

In England and Wales the period from May to July has been the wettest since record-keeping began in 1766.
