I spoke to Devon and Somerset Fire and Rescue Service Chief Lee Howell about plans to reallocate fire engines and crews across the region, which could result in Budleigh Salterton and Topsham stations closing.
East Devon's MP Sir Hugo Swire today called for Parliament to debate child exploitation, as reports emerged over the weekend that authorities failed to arrest a paedophile for 18 months after a tip-off about him.
On social media, Sir Hugo said: "All stakeholders need to get a move on on the relocation of Tipton St John Primary School. It is over two years since I secured a pledge of £750,000 from the Department for Education. We cannot wait forever.
