A yellow weather warning has been issued for today and tomorrow as surface water and landslips cause disruptions on road.

FURTHER weather warnings have been issued by the Met Office as North Devon continues to suffer an onslaught of rainfall.

The Met Office has issued a yellow weather warning across the whole of Devon until 8pm tonight (Thurs) and a further warning tomorrow from 6am until midnight.

Another yellow warning has also been issued all day Sunday.

A spokesman said: “Further rain, heavy at times, will spread northeast across southern parts of England today.

“Scattered heavy showers are expected on Friday.

“Further rain is possible on Sunday and, although there remains uncertainty in amounts, some of it could be heavy at times.

“With the ground already saturated from the recent wet weather the public should be aware that the heaviest of these could lead to localised flooding and disruption to travel.”

Low level flood alerts are still in place for Braunton, Ilfracombe and Combe Martin areas, the upper and lower Torridge areas and the lower Taw areas.

Around North Devon the effects of the weather are already prominent.

Torrs Park Road in Ilfracombe is currently closed after a landslip caused a fallen tree to block the road at the Upper Torrs junction.

Hugh Griffin, highways control centre manager for Devon County Council said on Twitter at 6.50am this morning: “Torrs Park Road closed in Ilfracombe, large bank collapse with large tree now a danger. A tree surgeon will look at it today @DevonRoads”

Reports of surface water on the A386 between Torrington and Bideford have also come through.

In Croyde, heavy rainfall has led to surface water on Hobbs Hill, and Twitter user @JessHeylandx said: “Is it ever going to stop raining....croyde is already flooding!!”
