ACCIDENTS AND road closures are coming in thick and fast as the overnight rain and high tides has brought localised flooding into South and East Devon. In Totnes there is currently localised flooding from Castle Street to Moat Hill…

Elsewhere, there's been flooding at:

Exeter: Vaughan Road. Flooding under the railway bridge and the road has had to be closed

Exmouth: localised flooding at Moreton Crescent

Kingsbridge: Ilbert Road

Shaldon: Ringmore Road

Accidents

There has been a serious accident on the A380, Exeter-bound on Telegraph Hill involving a coach and a number of cars. The road is closed and diversions are in place. There is a second accident on the A380 near to Splatford Split. More on both incidents here: Update: School bus in multi-vehicle crash

Flood warnings and alerts

Five flood warnings remain in force. The Environment Agency also has flood alerts in place for the Rivers Otter, Sid and the Exmouth area, and the South Devon coast at Beesands, Torcross, Slapton, Torbay and Dawlish.

Train services out of Devon have been disrupted due to flooding.

The first band of rain is now moving off through the East of the county. A further band is expected to come in soon from the west into Cornwall.
