Flash floods in Salcome after thunderstorm hits Devon

Thunderstorms have caused flash flooding in the seaside town of Salcombe, where police said dozens of businesses had been affected.

Videos posted on social media showed water in the main shopping street of the town, as the storms caused disruption in Devon.

The Met Office issued a yellow weather warning for thunderstorms in the area on Wednesday, warning that homes and businesses could be flooded.

It added: “Spray and sudden flooding could lead to difficult driving conditions and some road closures.

“Where flooding or lightning strikes occur, there is a chance of delays and some cancellations to train and bus services.”

The Met also warned of a “slight chance” that power cuts could occur and that some communities could become cut off by flooded roads.
