Rainstorms and floods have hit southern England killing at least one person.

The River Exe burst its banks, submerging streets under several feet of water.

Some people were told to leave their homes as floodwaters and torrential rain battered villages.

Major highways and roads in the southwest were closed and several train services were cancelled.
