Somerset floods: A361 may be 'flooded until Christmas'

The main road linking Taunton to Glastonbury could remain flooded and impassable until Christmas, the Environment Agency (EA) has said.

The manager of Gillards Haulage Company, Roger Hutchings, said the road closure was costing him £5,000 a week in lost business.

Robbie Williams, from the EA, said it was doing all it could to shift water from the Somerset Levels after the worst flooding in living memory.
