The Environment agency has warned the Lower River Taw and its tributaries from Newnham Bridge to Barnstaple, including Umberleigh, Chittlehampton, Swimbridge and Bishop's Tawton could be at risk from flooding following 'intense'rainfall today (thursday) and tomorrow.

The agency said the rain is expected to clear on Friday afternoon but the ground is already very wet and rivers across Devon are likely to respond to this latest rainfall.
