The Environment Secretary Caroline Spelman has met with flood victims who saw a deluge of water come through their village during yesterday's floods.
She was visiting Ottery St Mary, near Exeter, which saw some of its main roads turn into rivers after a month's worth of rain fell in just 24 hours.
Ms Spelman stopped at different locations around the village and talked to people about how effective these measures were during yesterday's downpour.
