Crowds greeted Wakefield farmers as they arrived in Somerset tonight.

Philip Rowbottom and Andrew Nicholson from Woolley have been on the road in their tractors since 5am today, with much-needed supplies destined for starving livestock in Bridgwater.

They arrived at around 5.30pm, where they were met by those who will benefit from their efforts, as well as locals.

Mr Rowbottom said: “I’m really chuffed to be here and the support we’ve had has been overwhelming.”

The #tractoraid mission will be featured on tonight’s One Show from 7pm.
