East Devon’s MP has vowed to deal with the issue of flooding in Exmouth during a visit to the town.

Hugo Swire promised residents overgrown vegetation by Bradham Bridge would be removed.

He said: “It was good to meet with a number of residents, local councillor Brian Bailey and two officers from the Environment Agency to discuss this ongoing problem.

“The Environment Agency has confirmed that it will clear the overgrown vegetation upstream of Bradham Bridge and we will see if this leads to an improvement. If it doesn’t, then we will have to revisit this issue.”
