A man was stuck in his van in tidal waters at Aveton Gifford.

Devon and Somerset Fire and Rescue Service received a call just after 8.30am on November 25.

Crews from Kingsbridge and Salcombe attended.

They managed to rescue the man who had become stranded at the Bigbury end and the incident ended at ten to ten.

The fire service are advising motorists to read flood signs.

They say it is better to look for an alternative route than to drive into flood water.
