Dulverton flood community to hold public meeting

A public meeting is to be held in an Exmoor town which was badly affected by flooding in December.

People in Dulverton had to leave their homes after the River Barle burst its banks, resulting in serious damage.

The town council, which organised the meeting, wants to listen to those who were affected and discuss future flood prevention measures.

Somerset County Council, Exmoor National Park Authority and the local fire service have all been invited.

The meeting is due to take place in Dulverton Town Hall later.
