The big clean up has started in Devon, but the county is still struggling to get back to normal after widespread flooding.

A number of drop-in sessions for people affected are taking place this week.

The Environment Agency, Council representatives and South West Water will attend the first meeting at Feniton Village Hall this afternoon.

Residents will be able to discuss some of the problems. Further sessions will be held in Cullompton and Kennford later this week.
