Rainfall stats for the UK ?

Does anyone know a good site that has daily rainfall stats for the UK ?

The Bureau of Meteorology site is the obvious place ... but I can't find it there. Neither the Glasgow observations page nor the hourly observations page for the UK include details of rainfall. There's a summary page which shows the top 10 rainfall totals, but (amazingly) Glasgow is often not one of the 10 wettest places in the UK on a given day. It looks like the BoM want to charge for anything beyond basic weather data, but surely rainfall is pretty basic ?

Obviously I've been spoiled by Australia's BoM site, which will happily give you the past 72 hours of observations (including rainfall) from any of their automatic measuring stations.

Any ideas ? Would anyone other than the BoM actually keep weather data ?
