Flood pictures from the weekend in and around the Exmouth area

East Devon was once again hit by relentless rain causing flood chaos to the region. Streets in Exmouth became rivers as the rain fell on already saturated ground. A hole opened up in the road on Portland Avenue which had to be closed to motorists. Budleigh Salterton was once again badly hit with the cricket pavilion flooded out to the rafters. Topsham was cut off at Darts Farm as the flood plain submerged the road, people were even out windsurfing and kayaking on the flooded fields.
