Cameron admits lessons to learn during Somerset visit

David Cameron has been to Somerset to see the scale of the flooding on the Levels for himself, as the government's response to the crisis is criticised.

He met cattle farmer Tony Davy, whose 100-acre farm is completely under water in what he says is the worst flooding he and his family have ever seen.

Mr Cameron admitted there were lessons to learn but said "the priority is to make sure that everyone in Somerset who needs help is getting help."
