THE SEAFRONT road in Torquay is closed because of flooding after a night of heavy rain.

First Great Western train services have resumed on the track at Dawlish after flooding led to cancellations.

Flooding also affected a number of shops in Bridge Street and Mill Street in Kingsbridge, south Devon.

Flood warnings are in place for several areas of south Devon, including Aveton Gifford, Salcombe, Kingsbridge, Cockwood and Topsham.

Forecasters say the heavy rain would spread east throughout the course of today (Friday).

Trains which follow the coast line at Dawlish were disrupted for more than a week in November by flooding and a mudslide.
