Flooding in Somerset

Emergency services have had a hectic 24 hours, with the area's fire services alone dealing with around two hundred calls.

A number of people have had to be rescued, including two people being pulled from their car in Curry Mallet near Taunton.

And flooding in one Somerset village was so deep that even the fire brigade were unable to pump the water out.
