Heavy rain causes flooding

South East Cornwall, Plymouth and the South Hams suffer a deluge of rain.

Cornwall and Devon's south coast continues clearing up after the heavy rain.

Roads in the South Hams were inundated as were those in the Looe area.

The worst flooding was seen in Polperro where a stream of mud (and potatoes from a nearby field) flowed through the village.

Warnings were given with enough notice for people to put sand-bags in front of their doors.

There were also problems this morning on the Tavistock Road as the rain continued. Surface flooding built up and caused traffic disruption.
