Friday’s destructive weather has left the A379 under at least five feet of debris and completely impassable at Torcross in Devon, where cars have been replaced by dog walkers. It is one of five roads in the south of the county blocked after weeks of sustained bad weather.

Meanwhile forecasters believe another 1.5in of rain will hit the flood-stricken South West in the next 24 hours, just days after half a million families were left without power by last week’s vicious Atlantic storm, which also claimed three lives and flooded hundreds of homes.
