Latest photos: Nightmare continues for flood-hit farmers

For farmers in the Somerset Levels where flooding has hit hardest, there’s no let-up from the heavy rain and gales.

Farmers are battling against the elements moving stock to safety and desperately try to find dry feed. The situation is only getting worse, with the Environment Agency issuing two new severe flood warnings one for the Fordgate and Northmoor area and the second for the A361 from East Lyng to Burrowbridge.

See the latest photos of flooded farms and farmland below.
