Floods hit Ottery

Ottery St. Mary suffered at the hands of flooding as it received a month’s worth of rain in one day.

The River Otter burst its banks in the early hours of Saturday morning as over night rainfall on already saturated land brought chaos to the town and its residents.

See the picture gallery for the latest images from Ottery.
