Floods clean-up continues across the West Country
School children from Muchelney in Somerset who's homes are still cut off by flood water, have been transported to school by boat this morning.
Somerset County Council is paying a thousand pounds a day to hire a flat bottomed boat from the Canal Trust and pay firemen to operate it. It will run for 15 trips a day.
The service will run for at least a fortnight and possibly longer depending on when water levels allow the roads to Muchelney to be reopened.
