South Yorkshire firefighters are still battling the elements in Somerset after being deployed to help with the flood relief effort.

Six firefighters have taken South Yorkshire’s most powerful piece of pumping equipment, which can move 8,000 litres of water a minute.

Firefighters from brigades across the country are helping, with much of Somerset still under water and further heavy rain forecast.
