Flooded Gloucestershire home rebuilt 'on stilts'

Sam and Dawn Ray's home in Walham, Gloucestershire, was flooded so badly in 2007, they decided to rebuild it on stilts.
Mr Ray said he had taken the measure because their home would have been impossible to sell.
But with the current flooding problems in the county the stilts have proved their worth.
