Somerset floods: Evacuation 'devastates' Fordgate resident
Four years ago, Maria Maye and her husband left France to retire in Fordgate on the Somerset Levels.
In the early hours they were forced to leave their home - evacuated through a window after flood water inundated the ground floor.
She told BBC Somerset her husband was devastated: "I had never seen my husband cry and he cried his eyes out saying 'this is just unfair'."
