Flood water causes evacuation in Yealmpton

Callout – Team called out to assist with the evacuation of residents at Yealmpton due to high levels of floodwater. Following this initial callout we received a second call to Exeter where it was reported that somebody had fallen in the River Exe.

Despite extensive searching that included the find of some clothing that may or may not have been linked, the team was stood down in the late afternoon with no further information forthcoming. It was suspected that the person in the water could have been mistaken as river debris such as a partially submerged log.
