- West Country (W)
Devon and Somerset Fire Service has come to the aid of a woman in Loddiswell in South Hams. Crews found her sat on the roof of her car yesterday evening. It was stranded in two feet of rising flood water. They rescued her by boat and moved the vehicle to safety.
It appears there is unlikely to be any let up in the relentless rain showers that have battered the Westcountry over the past few days.
Communities in Devon hit by floods over the weekend have been praised by Devon County Council. Many residents are still clearing up.
