Two amphibious vehicles are being driven down to Somerset today from Alrewas in Staffordshire to help victims of flooding on the Somerset Levels.
I have been working with Staffordshire Civil Contingencies Unit for some years on the re-utilisation of equipment like this, and for exactly this kind of emergency.
I'm really pleased to see that Staffordshire's highly detailed preparations for all emergency situations will now be used to help the people of Somerset who so desperately need this type of support.
