PROPERTIES in Lynmouth felt the full force of the high tides and gale force winds last night (Wed).

The Environment Agency confirmed 10 properties, a mixture of domestic and business, had been flooded.

High tide peaked between 8pm and 9pm last night and gale force winds brought high waves crashing onto the sea front.

Reports came in on Twitter last night that cars had been trapped in floodwater.

@EnvAgencySW said: “Some cars have been trapped in flood water at #Lynmouth. Please don’t try to walk through floodwater to your car - it can be very dangerous.”

A further tweet from the agency also said: “Our teams are on site now dealing with flooding at #Lynmouth. We think 10 properties have been flooded. #SWFlood”
