The Fire Brigade have had to be rescued by volunteers after one of their amphibious vehicles went too deep into floodwaters on the Somerset Levels.
The Flood Levels Action Group used their tracked vehicle to tow the fire brigade to safety at Burrowbridge. It's not clear how long the vehicle will be out of action, or how much repairs will cost.
Andy Maynard from the Flooding on the Levels Action Group was involved in the rescue:
Campaigners have come up with a novel way to prevent future flooding across our region by reintroducing beavers to our waterways.
The Prime Minister has announced a £10 million support package for businesses affected by the floods.
Part of Gloucester has withstood the high tides so far but a severe warning remains in place with fears of more flooding
