A major incident has been declared in Somerset because of flooding risks the Environment Agency said.

Enhanced pumping began on Tuesday at Northmoor to clear water off the Somerset Levels and a flood warning has been issued for Saltmoor and Northmoor and agency officers were offering advice in the village of Moorland.

Ian Withers from the EA said it was a precautionary step to help ensure partners were coordinated.

He said the risk to communities had reduced and the situation had settled because of dry weather conditions.

“The sight of water on the Somerset Levels and Moors is obviously a concern to those who have suffered from flooding before.

“Our staff continue to work to the best of their abilities to protect people and properties, install pumps and engage with communities,” he said.
