It's going to take months to put right flood damage caused to Exmoor National Park. Some paths and bridges have been swept away. The cost of repairs is expected to reach more than a £100,000.
Meanwhile Somerset County Council is preparing to rebuild the historic Tarr Steps after more than half of the clapper bridge was destroyed. Our Somerset Correspondent, David Woodland reports:
One of Exmoor's most iconic landmarks has been swept away by the recent flooding. The ancient clapper bridge, Tarr Steps, was demolished after fallen trees pushed up against the giant stones.
Three quarters of the bridge has gone and will have to be rebuilt.
