Pictures by Gillian Harris show how Storm Doris battered Exmouth sea front this morning.

Strong winds this morning caused water to lap over the wall and onto the roads and paths which line the town’s sea front.

The MET Office has issued a severe weather warning for tomorrow (Friday, February 3) for wind.

Gales are expected to affect the region through tomorrow and early Saturday morning.

A Met Office spokesman said: “Coastal areas will see a longer period of 50 to 60 mile-per-hour gusts with isolated gusts up to 70 miles-per-hour.

“Some travel disruption is possible as well as some trees being brought down. Some heavy rain may also bring surface water issues to parts of southwest England.”
