Bank closures, care protections, and a colourful 5k


Friday, 31 March 2023 - 17 minutes

The week’s edition of Devoncast discusses the latest round of bank closures across Devon and whether the ongoing switch to digital banking risks leaving some customers out in the cold.

Rob Kershaw, Philip Churm and Ollie Heptinstall also look at why young people who have left the care system in Plymouth may have some reason to celebrate.

Elsewhere, one of our local authorities faces potential legal action over a planned cut in adult services, hundreds of new houses will be built across Exeter, and find out why one group of councillors are getting tougher on “debate not hate.”

And fancy doing a 5k run while getting covered in powder paint? We round off this week’s podcast by chatting to Children’s Hospice South West about their Rainbow Run, which returns to Devon in the summer.
