East Devon in the grip of locust invasion
Or is it? You tell us!
COULD a creature, photographed in an East Devon garden, be a locust?
Axmouth resident Jon Underwood is keen to find out - just in case his village is set to be invaded by the pests.
He photographed this insect on a plant in his garden.
“Have you had any reports of East Devon being invaded by locusts?” he asked the Midweek Herald.
