Ozzy Osbourne's mansion in Buckinghamshire, England has been severely damaged by flooding and will cost more than $48,000 (£30,000) to repair. Many regions were deluged when torrential downpours hit the U.K. this year (14) in the wettest winter since records began in 1910, and Buckinghamshire was one of the worst affected areas. Osbourne and his wife Sharon are based in Los Angeles but they will not be able to live in their $8 million (£5 million) English base for months due to water damage. The Black Sabbath frontman tells the Daily Mirror newspaper, "It's been completely flooded. The rain has battered down the walls and seeped through everything. There is water everywhere. "We've been told it's going to cost £30,000 to repair but we can't go about getting it fixed because it's going to take nine months to dry out. The place is ruined."
