Ottery St Mary Police have tweeted for motorists to avoid the town 'at the moment' due to the flash flooding.

Residents have warned about cars driving through flood water outside of the Old Factory and Victoria Terrace.

Others have raised concerns about routes from Patterson Cross to Butts Road beginning to flood.

Councillor Dean Stewart said flood gauge warnings are being triggered by the amount of rainfall and people are already reporting flooding by the old factory and other places.
