Flood-hit village church reopens

More than two years after Gloucestershire's summer floods, a village church has finally reopened.

Tirley Church, near Tewkesbury, was badly damaged in the downpours in 2007. Since then parishioners have been holding services in the village hall.

The church's reopening coincides with Back to Church Sunday, aimed at improving congregation numbers.

The flooding caused widespread devastation across the county with many families losing their homes.
