A section of Exeter Universities new £48m forum flooded yesterday as heavy rainfall wreaked havoc across the city.

The library and Alumni Auditorium, part of the section opened by the Queen earlier this year, flooded at roughly 6:30pm yesterday.

An area was cordoned off and lectures were cancelled as rain started to fall through the ceiling of the building (see picture).

It is being reported that parts of the building could be closed for a few days.

Extreme weather in Exeter yesterday also collapsed a wall on Hele Road and forced the High Street Christmas Light switch-on to be postponed until today.
