Twenty-five people have been evacuated from their properties after flooding hit Stoke Canon near Exeter.

Those who were evacuated, including 11 from an isolated farm house, were taken to a rescue centre.

Many people described the flooding as "tragic" and "upsetting" and said it was difficult to deal with so close to Christmas.
