One year on from the Chew Stoke floods

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.
