Business owners in Maidstone are counting the cost of the past week's floods.

With trade down by an estimated 25% in the town, some business owners also face losing much of their stock and hefty clear-up bills.

BBC South East's Simon Jones spoke to Claire Harvey, of Seekers Lettings Agency, Michael Schembri, of the Bridges Restaurant, and Paul Alcock, from Maidstone Town Centre Management.
