Axminster hair and beauty salon gets a wash and dry

Firefighters were called to pump out a flooded cellar at a hair and beauty salon in Axminster today (Thursday, April 23).

Crews from Axminster and Colyton attended the incident at Melanie Browns, in George Street.

They used pumps to remove the water, which it is understood was caused by a blocked drain in a neighbouring property.

The salon remained open for business throughout.
