Ancient bridge collapsed in heavy rains

EXMOOR'S Tarr Steps bridge - in Somerset - has been swept away by a raging, swollen river as what is likely to be the wettest year on record comes to a soggy end.
The iconic 1,000-year-old clapper bridge is the latest landmark to be hit by the aftermath of weeks of relentless downpours.
Other areas all around Devon are still threatened by landslips, saturated ground and the continued risk of flooding.
