Vintage vehicle show near Burnham-On-Sea cancelled due to flooding

The annual Sedgemoor Vintage Vehicle Show, which was due to take place this weekend on the outskirts of Highbridge, has been cancelled due to flooding caused by heavy rain.

Dozens of vintage tractors, classic cars, trucks, motorcycles and stationary engines were to go on display at Isleport Farm on Saturday and Sunday.

But, as pictured here, the fields turned into a quagmire this morning (Saturday) following hours of rainfall, leading to the cancellation of the popular event.

Some of the vintage tractors were pressed into action to tow out stuck vehicles from the fields.

One of the organisers, Anne Roper, told this morning (Saturday): "Sadly we have had to cancel the whole event - the fields are under three feet of water in several parts."

"Up until 5.30pm last night it was all looking good but then we had heavy overnight rain and the land is sadly too wet for us to go ahead."
