TESCO has donated 400 items of furniture and 'home starter kits' of microwaves, kettles, cutlery and other essentials to flood victims.

The £35,000 load was delivered today (March 26) in four lorries to the donation centre at Huntworth Business Park, near Junction 24, Bridgwater - people needing supplies can visit the centre from Sunday to Thursday 10am to 3pm.

The appeal has been so overwhelmed that Somerset County Council is looking for a new warehouse to store donations.

Anyone with suitable space of around 13,500sq ft in the Bridgwater area should e-mail SCCPropertyServices@somerset.gov.uk
