A 32 tonne excavator is in position to begin dismantling parts of the river wall in Bridgwater. The final phase of engineering work to repair the West Quay wall is about to begin after a crack appeared late last year. Some local traders were forced to leave their premises.
High water levels have delayed vital work to repair the river wall at Bridgwater.
The wall at West Quay collapsed during Bridgwater Carnival last year after torrential rain, and is still being rebuilt. Today the damp walls showed how high the river came following last week's torrential rain.
Somerset County Council says as soon as the river levels drop again, the workmen will be able to continue with their repairs.
