Businesses are preparing for the worst on Exeter Quay tonight after Floodline has described flooding on the River Exe as 'imminent'.

Sandbags have been laid in the hope to save the buildings along the quayside.

The RNLI’s south west Flood Rescue Team have tonight (Saturday 24 November) been tasked to assist the emergency services in Exeter, Devon.

The team that’s made up of RNLI lifeboat crew volunteers, who are trained in flood rescue techniques, will be responding to the city with two inshore lifeboats.
