Northumberland flood-hit house raised by stilts

A house in Northumberland has been raised by 2.6m (8.5ft) to prevent it from flooding.

The property in Corbridge was devastated during Storm Desmond in December.

Now the family has spent £140,000 raising their 100-tonne home on stilts to create a "floodable" basement to protect it in the future.
