The main railway line through Devon is closed for repair after being damaged by storm Callum.

This sinkhole in the line at Teignmouth is causing issues between Exeter and Newton Abbot with engineers having to wait until high tide before they can start repairs.

Flooding and high winds caused massive problems for the stretch of railway when storm Callum hit on Friday, 12 October.

There will also be no service on Great Western Railway between Looe and Liskeard due to urgent repairs to the track.
