Devoncast

Friday, 14 April 2023 - 19 minutes

As May’s local elections draw ever closer, we’re joined by a political expert from the University of Exeter on this week’s edition of Devoncast.

Dr Stuart Fox, senior lecturer in politics, shares his thoughts on how the main parties will fare in Devon next month, how new voter ID rules will impact the polls, and whether the elections could cause a problem for the prime minister.

Plus, Ollie Heptinstall and Philip Churm discuss an alarming new report which reveals many of Devon’s roads are expected to get worse because of a lack of funding. It’s led to one surprising suggestion from a councillor.

And we take a look at how Plymouth will mark the king’s coronation next month.
