Region's farmers support flood victims

Members of agricultural purchasing group Anglia Farmers have donated more than £10,500 to help pay for deliveries of forage to farmers in the south west of England.

The donations will be used to fund loads of fodder beet, sugar beet and straw.

A number of the group's members and suppliers have also offered haulage and time to transport deliveries to the flood hit areas.
