Scientists tell the journal Nature that the torrent probably came from a giant lake in what is now the North Sea.
Some event - perhaps an earthquake - caused the lake's rim to breach at the Dover Strait, they believe.
Dr Sanjeev Gupta, from Imperial College London, and colleagues say the discharge would have been one of the most significant megafloods in recent Earth history, and provides an explanation for Britain's island status.

Researchers at a leading UK university have been studying how Bronze Age Britons coped with climate change; and how well they appeared to have adapted to the varying environment.

This is a simple map of the British Isles as it is today ; but ten thousand years ago it was part of a bigger land mass . It was global warming which raised sea levels and flooded the lowland areas which connected Britain to the rest of Europe.
These scientists from Birmingham University are using advanced computer technology at the universitys VISTA Centre to study the archaeology of climate change. They can model past landscapes and understand better the full impact of climate change.
