Britain became island in 24 hours

The survey, led by Imperial College London’s Sanjeev Gupta, revealed the “remains of a huge valley, running south-west from the Strait of Dover” plus “deep bowls, scour marks and piles of rubble on the sea bed that may have been caused by a torrent of water”. [..]

“This suggests the valley was created by a catastrophic flood following the breaching of the Dover Strait and the sudden release of water from a giant lake to the north.”‘
