The station is inviting people in Sidmouth to get in touch with their support stories, which will be shared with listeners.

Sid Valley Radio presenters will keep the town updated on any new developments as they unfold.

A spokesman for the radio station said: “The role of Sid Valley Radio in keeping communications going across the Sid Valley has never been more vital.

“And, over the coming weeks, your local radio station will become even more important as a source for news and information to families, businesses and individuals adapting to new ways of living and working.”

The spokesman said Sid Valley Radio could share information quickly, as new developments unfold.

“The current situation has shown the important role that local radio can play during an emergency,” said the spokesman.
