Carnival organisers to manage traffic
Trained volunteers will man road blocks in Honiton.
Instead, trained volunteers will be used in addition to the carnival’s marshalling team.
Inspector Antonia Weeks says, although police have “stepped away” from traffic management, officers will be focused on tackling anti-social behaviour on carnival night.
“We are now into the carnival season and preparing for darker evenings and the run-up to Hallowe’en and bonfire night,” she said.
“These are flashpoints for anti-social behaviour and the neighbourhood teams will be focused on this.”

Inspector Weeks said organisers of Devon County Show and Beautiful Days also managed their own traffic and were successful.
“It proves that a robust traffic management plan, implemented by a team of trained contractors, works,” she told the Midweek Herald.
