People in Somerset are being invited to take part in a free day of training workshops in Sedgemoor to help prepare for emergencies such as flooding and snow.

The event, taking place on Thursday 25 October, has been organised by the Environment Agency.

It is aimed at better preparing communities for incidents like the flooding seen in the county in 2014.

It will run from 10am to 4pm at the Sedgemoor Auction Centre, near North Petherton.
