Flash flooding in Tipton St John and Newton Poppleford

The flash flooding in Newton Poppleford and Tipton St John was widely reported last night.

BBC spotlight reported that parents were told not to attempt to collect their children from the Tipton Primary. The children were rescued by a combination of the fire service and a local tractor and trailer.

The Environment Agency (EA) declared in 2015 that there is a ‘risk to life’ of the children attending the hub and that it must be rebuilt outside of the flood zone.

Don’t worry Simon Jupp is on the case! 

He takes aim at Devon County Council not EDDC for once.
