Floods clear-up begins in Moorland in Somerset

8 March 2014 Last updated at 12:59 GMT

A clear-up operation has begun in Somerset to tackle the devastation caused by flooding.

More than 500 people from across Britain have volunteered online to help remove 100,000 sandbags, rotting furniture and debris.

Moorland, where 50,000 sandbags were put out, is one of the first areas to have access to its roads and houses cleared.

Work will then begin to clear other flood-affected areas of the county.
