THE source of a mystery pong in part of Honiton has been identified - a tramp!

Staff at Honiton Tourist Information Centre were forced to investigate an unusual smell this morning - only to find a vagrant camped at the side of the Lace Walk car park building.

TIC workers initially thought youngsters had thrown a Chinese take-away meal on the building's roof.

Police have attended and say the tramp will move on - once he has finished eating his breakfast!
