Heavy rain left a Somerset home flooded last night (Sunday).

Devon and Somerset Fire and Rescue Service were called to a house in Burnham-on-Sea to deal with the incident.

The emergency service received a 999 call just after 10pm, amid reports a house in College Street was partially underwater.

A spokesman for the fire service said a leak was to blame for failing to stop rainwater entering the property.

The spokesman said: “The fire service was called to reports of flooding within a property.

“The fire control mobilised one appliance from Burnham to attend this incident.

“Upon arrival crews confirmed water was entering via a sky light.

“The flooding was due to local weather conditions.”
