A public appeal has begun to raise money for a memorial to a Somerset village's war dead.

A group in Puriton wants to build a memorial on the village green commemorating the seven local men who lost their lives in World War I and II.

The village's St Michael & All Angels church has plaques naming the fallen, but the group says this is not enough.

Campaigner June Holland said the group wants to raise £4,000 to build the memorial.

She said: "I would be thrilled if we can achieve it. And very emotional."
