It was a sad day for the Durham student as the River Wear decided enough was enough; the musical cheese and especially the ludicrous VIP area must sink into the quaddiemire. The sweat-crusted walls and cranberry/orange juiced floors of our beloved (and controversially re-owned) second-worst-club-in-Europe were given a fresh film of mud as horrified Barboured onlookers observed from the bridge.
On Tuesday a whole month’s worth of rain fell across the North East in just 24 hours, hitting Durham city with torrential downpours leading to early shop closures across the city, disabled cars at Maiden Castle and the cancellation of Economics seminars. Roads were closed, waterproofs donned, shoes ruined and trips to the library postponed.
