Prince Charles is set to return to the flood-hit village of Muchelney in Somerset.

The visit comes five months after the Prince of Wales saw the impact of flooding on agriculture and the livelihoods of people on the Somerset Levels.

The Prince used the emergency boat service - the only means of travelling in and out of Muchelney at the time - and a tractor to meet people in their own homes.

He also criticised efforts to help those affected by the floods, saying: "The tragedy is that nothing happened for so long."
