Prince Charles has met residents of villages on the Somerset Levels in a visit to see for himself the damage caused by severe flooding.

The Prince of Wales travelled to the stranded village of Muchelney by boat. He was then towed on a tractor trailer to a farm in Thorney.

Large areas of Somerset are still underwater and whole villages have been cut off after extensive floods hit the southwest in January.

Residents of the villages of North Moor, Muchelney, Thorney, Oath and Slathe are still cut off with Muchelney being reachable only by boat or air for over a month.
