A railway line which recently reopened after flood damage has been closed again.

The line between Teignmouth and Dawlish was shut last night after tonnes of mud broke through a fence and fell onto the railway tracks.

The main railway line from Exeter to the rest of the country was reopened at Tiverton after heavy flooding last week.

However speed restrictions and delays are still in place.

Network Rail says it could be two weeks before the line is back to normal.
