Prince Charles has been to flood-hit areas of Somerset and told residents it was a "tragedy" nothing had been done for so long.

One of the Prince's charities is donating £50,000 to help victims, while the government has announced an extra £300,000 of emergency funding.

The Somerset Levels have seen some of the worst flooding in recent weeks and some villages have been cut off for more than a month.
