Flood protection work begins in the Somerset levels

Large parts of the Somerset levels were flooded by severe weather in the winter of last year.

Villages were isolated by the water and many had to evacuate their homes.

On Monday, work begins to raise parts of one of the main roads in the area to protect it from flooding in future.

John Maguire reports from Somerset.
