Photographers Christian Cooksey and Mark Mainz captured the flooding in images taken in the Cowcaddens area of the city centre, which was inches deep in water.

A jet stream that soared 30ft high into the sky as Scottish Water workers tackled the problem was captured by photographer Colin Mearns in picture.
