Dawlish storm victim: 'Water coming through our windows'

Parts of Britain are being hit by a powerful storm which has washed away a stretch of railway line and left thousands of homes without electricity.

The Environment Agency says around 328 homes have been flooded since Friday evening - with more heavy rain forecast into the weekend.

A section of the sea wall in Dawlish, Devon, collapsed and left the main railway line suspended in mid-air.

Dawlish resident Chris Saich told the BBC that he was evacuated from his home on Tuesday night.
