Scotland Tonight: Is Scotland's summer over before it has begun?

The last month has seen record levels of rainfall and extensive flooding through Scotland.

STV’s Sean Batty, psychologist Dr Cynthia McVey and blogger Thea Newcomb were in the Scotland Tonight studio to discuss how the weather is affecting everyone and if the summer is over before it has begun.

Thea Newcomb said: "It’s definitely not a laughing matter but on the other hand I think Scotland can make talking about the weather an Olympic sport.

"It’s always words like horrible and terrible. If you’re going to complain about the weather here you’re arguing with reality, there’s nothing you can do about it."

Dr Cynthia McVey said: "We expect Seasonal Affective Disorder to affect people in the winter because of the shorter days and the lack of light and I do wonder now, because it’s been so grey for so long, whether some people will experience the symptoms of that."

And Sean Batty said that more wet weather is still to come.
