I recorded 68.2 mm at my site in the 24 hours ending at 0900z. I wasn't the highest, though. A place called Llety Brongu (which is in the valley of the Llynfi river, near Maesteg - about 8 miles to the southwest of Ystrad) had recorded 75.0 mm up to 0700z. I don't know what their 09-09 total was, though, and have no other figures to hand.
Puts my 25.2mm into perspective!
Penzance A vastly better day - currently
Just a typical wet day here, Graham :-) I actually recorded more on 29th July - 69.8 mm. No real impacts here as it is a fairly normal total - the river rose about a metre for a short while.
Not that I'm used to it - having lived in the Shropshire/Powys rain shadow for the past 25 years.

36.4 mm here on SW Devon coast.
Now that is wet for us.
Not a 24 hr record though.
That was 48.6 mm 0n 25th Aug 1986.

I'm surprised you've not had a wetter day.
My wettest 09:00-09:00 days
13/11/02 84.5mm (near 200mm near St Ives. where there was severe flooding 1 month after the opening of the big flood prevention scheme - someone forgot to turn the pumps on - allegdly))
My wettest day ever was when I was in Wootton Bassett (promoted to Royal after I left) when 90.2mm fell in 2 hours. Now that was exciting.
Decent enough day here today, much less wind & dry (since 09:00) with sunny intervals. Temperature topped 20C after yesterdays 19.2C the lowest max of the month.
