'Mile after mile of flood water'

Large areas of Somerset remain under water with residents demanding the dredging of rivers - aerial views show mile after mile of flood water across the county.

Environment Secretary Owen Paterson has been facing angry victims of flooding in Somerset.

Large areas remain under water, and pumping stations around the Somerset Levels are pumping thousands of tonnes of water per second back into the River Parrett.

Residents blame the Environment Agency for a lack of regular dredging - saying they have been warning of problems for years.

The BBC's Jon Kay says there is mile after mile of flood water.
