Fish have been fished out of the Rive Exe today by the Environment Agency.

A sinkhole appeared near St James Weir last month, which has led to a drop in water levels. It also swallowed a bench.

But it's less water that's put the fish at risk. So they've been taken away and will be put back at different parts of the Exe later.
