Exmouth’s mayor has paid tribute to residents and town hall and district council workers who helped prevent flooding this week.

On Monday, Exmouth Town Council staff were on the seafront at 8.15am.

While the town hall was open from 8.30am until 8pm that evening, to enable people to pick up sandbags and to keep residents informed of the situation.

Councillor John Humphreys said: “Our heartfelt thanks must go out to the many people who have worked so hard in the face of yet more terrible weather that has lashed our town and the region.

“Our team reported the flooding to Devon County Council Highways as well as the East Devon District Council workers at Camperdown Depot to take what measures were possible.

“Community spirit is great in this town and it’s heart warming to see it in action. But I bet I’m not the only one hoping for sunnier times ahead.”
