Pests, pop and roadblocks

Devoncast

Tuesday, 12 September 2023 - 33 minutes

From pests on the water in Torbay and anti-social behaviour in Barnstaple to Scandinavian dream-pop and roadblocks in Exeter, it’s all on this week’s Devoncast.

We criss-cross the county as ever to report on the issues making waves where you are.

For instance, Torbay’s harbourmaster has a new weapon in the war on rogue riders of personal watercraft on the waters of the bay, and he tells us how he’s looking forward to using its speed and power to keep the pests in check.

And we meet North Devon’s street marshals as they work to make their town centres more welcoming for shoppers and visitors.

There’s music news as a Devon drummer and his band hit the road and release some intriguing new music, and we’re at County Hall in Exeter, where protesters have been making their voices heard.

The city’s controversial new Low Traffic Neighbourhood trial is at the heart of the issue, and we talk to some of the people who say that the current trial is doing more harm than good.
