“It is impossible not to compare the flooding this week to that of 2007 and the devastating effect floods have on homes, lives and businesses.
Right now we need to let the Environment Agency and emergency services get on with their jobs and I thank them most sincerely for the tireless work they are doing to keep people safe and reduce the risk of further flooding. My home and family have been directly impacted by flooding and I understand the pain that this sort of devastation can cause to peoples' lives.
Over the last few days I have been in contact with the Environment agency and I urge people across the South West not to take dangerous risks at this time - especially when driving. Signing up to the Environment Agency's flood alert service will give people the very latest news of any risk to their area.
Lets hope the waters subside very quickly without further loss of life and too much damage to property.”
