Council: Localised flooding remains a hazard in Devon

Roads in Devon are likely to remain closed for most of the day because of localised flooding, Devon County Council has warned.

A release from the council said although wind and rain has moved on, roads between South Molton and Umberleigh have been closed, because the River Bray has burst its banks.

The council and Devon and Cornwall Police are advising road users to remain stay alert throughout the day.

They advise not to drive through flood water, or fords with heightened flows.

For more information on road closures visit the Devon County Council website.
