Burton Bradstock near Bridport in Dorset was one of the places affected by the floods at the weekend.

Roads and playing fields were under several feet of water and some motorists had to be rescued from their cars as river levels on the Brit and Asker breached the banks.

With water levels now receding, local residents have been counting the cost of the unseasonal weather.
