@FredBassett - good points, don't the local/district/county council's get some sort of allowance for the total number of miles of cycle path on their patch. i saw to often the lunacy of these developements in london, when i lived there. they would take an extremely busy road, which always had hundred's of cars parked on it and put a cycle path on it. the cyclist's could never use it because ...

@ZIGGY - thanks for the heads up, but call 101 what a joke that service is - not fit for purposes. Okay I suppose if you want to sit on your phone line racking up a charge for 20 to 40 min's or more!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Checking the reg they show, I know they say 'similar to', but checking car parts websites that specific reg does not exist anyway. Would it not have been ...

WARNING: There has just been an attempted car theft in Bishopsteignton at approximately 1200 hrs today. A male and a female were stopped on the side of the road with a ‘baby’ in a car seat and appeared to be having a domestic incident. A caller stopped to check if everything was OK and noted that the child in the car seat was in fact a doll. Whilst the caller got out of his car, the male ...

So there you have it as per Westcountry ITV news. More false promises from Cam-moron and his fellow Con-servatives. Not only no inland replacement line, but no improvement to the existing coast line either. Think its time Anne-Marie Morris, Jeremy Christophers and the rest of the incompetence party stood down and called a by-election. The time for UKIP has arrived. By the way anyone noticed how ...

A commitment to build a new railway line is to be postponed by decades, leaving no immediate replacement to the storm-battered line at Dawlish. Prime Minister David Cameron paid a number of visits and declared ambitious rail plans must be made for the region. But two years later and apart from repairing the damage there has been little progress. Read more... ...

TWO years after the train line, sea wall, platforms and coastal path were destroyed, we look back at photos of the storm damage which cut off the Westcountry on February 4, 2014.

BBC Radio 1's Big Weekend, which will take place at Powderham Castle, is traditionally a free ticketed event with a one-pair-per-person rule. Full ticket details will be announced on March 21.

What is worse for dog owner's who actually pick up their dog's no 2's is stepping in some that hasn't been picked up by an ignorant dog walker, obviously I exclude blind dog's who I would pickup myself if I saw it doing a no 2. Can't expect the owner to pick it up. What's the green paint for. If they do it on the grass it makes it more camoflauged than it was before, typical council ...

I have written about this problem before. With the vast amount of dog poop left around the town/lawn/sea front. As a new dog owner myself  I'm very aware that picking up after your dog is vital and is a health hazard to leave it as many seem to do. Last week walking up the Strand there was a huge mound of the stuff right in the middle of the pavement. Also walking back from Coryton Cove last week ...
