A new date has been announced for a Honiton triathlon which was previously postponed.

Organiser Pure Endurance has announced Honiton Triathlon will be held on Sunday, October 6.

In a statement, the firm said: "Thanks for all your patience and understanding, we have been working hard with all our partners to get another date in the diary.

"We totally understand that some competitors will not be able to make the new date so please email us ASAP.

"Due to the circumstances we will refund your entry fee to those competitors that can't make the new date."

The triathlon was cancelled following the arrival of travellers in Honiton.

A small fleet of caravans parked up on Allhallows Field earlier this month.

The run was supposed to be held on Sunday, July 7.

Organisers said the decision was a 'difficult' one to make.
