Somerset floods: 'Everyone feels let down and angry'

Large parts of the Somerset Levels have suffered extensive flooding in recent weeks - and with more wet weather forecast there are fears the situation could get even worse.

The BBC has been speaking to local residents to see how they are coping and get their opinions on how authorities are handling the crisis.

Tim Holmes is from Stathe and has been helping co-ordinate community efforts to provide sandbags for people all over Somerset.

He praised the way that people had come together to help those in need, but said everyone was feeling "let down, disappointed and angry" at the government's response.
