Heavy rain in Devon overnight caused a 15m (49ft) long section of wall to collapse on to a main road in Dawlish. Devon County Council said it happened on the A379 at the bottom of Teignmouth Hill. Highways crews are at the scene investigating the damage. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-devon-21910061
We are trying to make people aware that Teignbridge District Council has put the Pirates Chest up for tender in a way that seems very under-handed to Bob. Many of you know he has been there for over 30years and is much loved by all.
