Heavy rain brings further flooding

Parts of Devon are under water again after heavy rain overnight, falling on saturated ground and swollen watercourses.


The worst of the problems are currently in the west of the county... but more heavy rain is expected today and tomorrow.

A flood warning has just been issued for the river Exe from Tiverton to Exeter including Bickleigh ... and warnings were already in place for the Clyst from Broadclyst to Clyst St Mary.

some road and rail travel is being disrupted ... and work's been carried out to protect the main Plymouth to London railway line at Cowley Bridge, where severe flooding from the river last month stopped the trains from running.

Fire crews have helped put up barriers to divert water away from the Cowley Bridge junction area.
