Warnings about Devon’s flood defences we published in February 2015

“… The Environment Agency data showed the majority were in areas where large numbers of homes and businesses could be vulnerable to flooding.

However, the agency said “most of the issues are minor”.

Other failures from the agency’s latest inspection report included some sea defences, culverts, outfalls and embankments.”
