Sewers 'back to normal' in Torquay

Raw sewage is no longer being pumped into the sea off the coast of Torquay.

South West Water says it has finished repairs to a key sewer which had been damaged when part of the sea wall collapsed at Livermead on Easter Monday.

While the sewer was being repaired, thouands of gallons of raw waste was diverted into the sea through the emergency overflow system.

The public had been warned not to swim at three local beaches on the English Riviera.
