The sea wall at Lee, Mortehoe, has been damaged during storms over the weekend.

Devon County Council has had to introduce an emergency road closure and diversion route after the breach of the wall created a large void in the structure and washed out a section of the road.

A water supply has also been exposed and damaged due to the storm. South West Water has already responded and is setting up a temporary water supply for those affected.

Devon County Council will be carrying out repairs as soon as possible and temporary protection will be installed in the interim.
