Amphibious vehicles built by a Staffordshire company are heading south today to help victims of the Somerset floods.
The vehicles are currently kitted out to get aid to stranded communities.
The manufacturers have been working with the Staffordshire Civil Contingencies Unit - a team set up to help in emergencies.
The company, based in Alrewas, has spent the last two days providing training to nine drivers before the vehicles could be deployed to the flood-stricken area.
