Flood-hit A372 road re-opens after 11 weeks of flood work

A section of flood-hit road on the Somerset Levels has officially reopened, 11 weeks after it closed.

The A372 between Aller and Othery, which was flooded last winter, has been closed since September for flood prevention work.

It marks the completion of the first phase of flood protection works at Beer Wall.

Somerset County Council said the work meant the road would stay open if there was a repeat of last year's conditions.
