A flood warning in still in force for the River Torridge (lower), according to the Environment Agency.

The warning includes riverside locations and roads between Dolton and Bideford, including New Bridge, Beaford Bridge, Taddiport, Rolle Bridge, Weare Giffard, Annery Kiln, and the A386, A3124 and B3227 at Great Torrington and Taddiport. A flood warning means flooding expected.

The area in and around Bideford experienced a quieter night after the wind and heavy rain passed through yesterday evening. However, more rain is predicted for tomorrow (Saturday).

Devon County Council said a number of minor roads are closed due to fallen trees which will be dealt with today. Council gangs are now scouting the road network to assess the situation. The Council has asked motorists to be mindful of fallen debris that might still be on the roads. More information is expected shortly.
