Malmesbury flooding in Wiltshire 'worst for 70 years'

Four people had to be rescued by firefighters from two homes in the Wiltshire town of Malmesbury after heavy rain led to flooding.

The mayor of Malmesbury said it was the worst flooding he had seen in the centre of the town for nearly 70 years.

Part of High Street was cut off by and roads in and out of the town were flooded.

Flooding minister Richard Benyon visited the town to see the damage for himself.
