Heavy rain causes flooding in west of England

Heavy rain has caused flooding and travel problems across much of Somerset and Bristol.

The Environment Agency issued flood warnings and many roads were submerged.

Rail services between Taunton, Bristol and Gloucester were badly affected with First Great Western asking passengers not to travel unless necessary.

The fire service said it attended more than 50 flood incidents and called on motorists not to attempt to drive through flood water.
