Police supported Honiton and District Carnival

Committee had help at hand.

ALTHOUGH police are no longer providing road block cover at carnivals in Devon, officers were out in force to support last night’s Honiton and District Carnival.

Positioned along the route, they were on hand - should a problem occur during the procession.

All the town’s senior officers turned out to support the event, including Inspector Antonia Weeks and Sergeant Martin Burrow.

Long-serving Pc Ian Atyeo, neighbourhood beat manager, led the front line policing team.

Road blocks were this year operated by Somerset and West Dorset Marshals.
