UKIP leader Nigel Farage is in Burrowbridge this morning - the latest in a line of high profile political figures to visit flooded Somerset.
The visit comes after UKIP called for the Government to divert funds from foreign aid to British flood victims.
Mr Farage's South West trip follows in the footsteps - or welly steps - of Environment Secretary Owen Paterson, Prince Charles, Lord Chris Smith of the Environment Agency and Prime Minister David Cameron.
Mr Farage has told Sky News' Dermot Murnaghan this morning from Burrowbridge: "We don't know what's happened her there appears to be a large amount of money spent in Exeter and here they have stopped dredging.
"We need a public inquiry about how we are managing the rivers in this country as we are clearly not getting it right.
"The public inquiry I call for is to look overall at this country at how we manage rivers and to what extent we are doing it ourselves and how we are following EU laws."
Mr Farage dismissed climate change as the cause of the Somerset floods and said it was "just the weather".
UKIP is calling for hundreds of millions of pounds of monthly spending to be taken from the Department For International Development on a month by month basis and switched to flood relief, repairing storm damage to property, replacing obliterated flood defences and restoring the transport network including rail links.
David Cameron’s pledge of £100 million extra spending was described by UKIP leader Nigel Farage as “far too little, far too late”.
The MEP said: “Anyone with an ounce of common sense knows that a government’s primary duty is to the well-being of its own citizens. Charity begins at home and it is not mean-spirited to say that, it is just basic common sense.
“The amount of damage caused by the floods and storms across a large swathe of the south west and other regions too is colossal. Yet the Government’s response is both lethargic and inadequate. People would be forgiven for thinking that they don’t really care and that ordinary British families are not their priority."
It is rumoured that Mr Farage will not make the same mistake Mr Paterson did and visit the area in smart black shoes. And he may go one-up on Mr Cameron and Prince Charles and be seen in waders.
We will bring you more news and photos about Mr Farage's visit later this morning.
