Archaeologists are studying Roman ruins that have been discovered on the site of a new road in Somerset.

Somerset County Council's Steve Membery told the BBC that the site probably belonged to wealthy landowners in approximately AD100.

The ruins, which were found during construction of the Cannington bypass, are described as locally important rather than nationally significant so will not prevent the road being built.

Nick Quraishi reports.
