Somerset floods: 'Mile after mile of flood water'

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.
