POLICE efforts to improve their visibility in the community have resulted in the donation of two bicycles. County councillor Roger Boote and Tim Raphael, of Cycle, Honiton, last week presented the bikes to the town's neighbourhood policing team. Councillor Boote used cash from his community fund, provided by Devon County Council, to contribute to the cause.

"They also have the added benefit of keeping these officers fit and healthy.
