Exeter Airport has been hit by flash flooding, with water reaching 3ft (90cm) high in places.

Firefighters were called out when the boiler room and basement of the terminal flooded at about 1510 BST.

Water also entered the main terminal's check-in area and the nearby B3184 link road was flooded. An airport car park was opened to allow traffic through.

The airport said the flood caused delays to a few services but no flights were cancelled.

One fire crew used a pump to remove water.
