Rain easing, but A386 closed at Tavistock due to fallen trees

ALTHOUGH THE RAIN is easing this evening in the South West, a number of roads have been closed by flooding and fallen trees, including the A386 Mount Tavy Road at Tavistock. There are still 37 flood warnings in place across the region and the police are advising the public not to travel unless absolutely necessary...

It was a grim picture today across much of the South West as the severe weather and high winds continued to cause havoc. Part of Plymouth city centre had to be cordoned off because of tiles falling off a building, while the ceremony to mark the Christmas lights switch-on – due to take place this evening – had to be cancelled.

And reports are just coming in from Devon County Council that the A386 Mount Tavy Road at Tavistock has been closed due to "large unsafe trees".
