Work is due to start in Malmesbury today to prevent a repeat of the flooding that hit the Wiltshire town in 2012 and 2013.

A digger will be used to remove silt, debris and vegetation from the River Avon and the base of the old gasometer will be taken down to widen the river.

It's expected to take two weeks.

More than 30,000 people are expected at Charlton Park near Malmesbury for this year's WOMAD. The festival, which has been running since 1982, celebrates music, arts and dance from around the world.

The weather hasn't been great so far but Bob Crampton will bring you the forecast from the site in Wiltshire, so we hope it won't be too wet.

You can watch - and hopefully hear some great music - on ITV West at 6pm.
