Ottery St Mary's Sainsbury's supermarket is temporarily closed this morning (Tuesday, October 24) after overnight flooding.

The store flooded after Storm Babet brought heavy rainfall to the area.

The closure of the supermarket also affects collections of purchases from Argos, orders from Ebay and DPD parcel collections.

A spokesperson for Sainsbury's told the Herald: "Our Ottery St Mary superstore is currently closed following local flooding from Storm Babet.  We’re sorry for any inconvenience this may have caused and are working hard to re-open as soon as possible.”
