It's the second day of the Taunton Flower show today. The UK's oldest floral show attracts up to 15,000 visitors every year. This year's event has a record number of competitive entries and also marks 100 years since the outbreak of the First World War, with a range of commemorative display boards created by local art students.

Organisers say the hot weather in July has produced some of the best blooms they've seen.

"Gardeners have obviously conserved their water and used it wisely. Their blooms are the best we've seen for many years. It actually worked in their favour."
