It is a year since devastating floods in Somerset and many people are still not back in their homes. People living in the Chew Valley were badly hit by torrential rain and one man died when his car was washed down a flooded brook.
Today the Environment Agency said people need to be ready for bad weather to hit again and prepare their homes as best they can. Laura Makin Isherwood reports.
The aftermath of the torrential storms that caused havoc across our region became clear today. One person died and many others were forced to evacuate their homes after flooding and landslides ripped through neighbourhoods.
The man who died was trapped after his 4x4 was swept away by a flash flood in the village of Chew Stoke, south of Bristol. It's thought he was visiting a relative who lived locally.
Our Somerset Correspondent David Woodland reports:
The river running through Chew Stoke near Bristol has burst its banks. This photo was taken on Sunday afternoon but residents say the water was even higher earlier in the day. The road was closed although landrovers and four-by-fours were getting through.
