@Lynne The only joke is the fact that the tax payer is keeping the looney in his life of luxury up at the Langdon holiday park for criminal nut balls. The money being spent on him and his fellow head cases could help fund the NHS A&E crisis.

Does nature itself have an answer to the seagull problem. Like a bigger bird of prey that can kill and partially eat them . Seriously do they have any natural threat to their existance

Do you think the RSPCA or the Fire Service might read these comments and provide a response that justifies their actions or are they silent organisations like others

Who is this nutter from the RSPCA that keeps calling the fire service to rescue bloody seagulls and is he/she getting the bill. If it carries on I want the proportion of my council tax bill that goes toward the fire service refunding, because Im not paying for the system to be abused in this way. Its worse than kids making hoax calls. Why cant the watch commander just refuse to attend on the ...

Remember when we had Police on the beat that used to deal with anti-social behavior as and when it happened. Today they just want to drive around in fast cars playing at Starsky and Hutch. Priorities all wrong somewhere. For the price of one of their fancy BMWs they could employ 2 or 3 beat bobbies. Not to mention the parafin parrot and what that costs to operate.

Its a shame TDC cant address the more important issues effecting the borough. Seems to be one rule for some and another for others as in a lot of cases around here.

Its a prison that hides under the term Hospital, and should never have been allowed in Dawlish. Some of the patients in there are dangerous criminals and should not be placed in a holiday resort. Hopefully there will be tighter controls and more staff to deal with them.

12 months for threatening to shoot a bus driver, thats a bit unfair, every ordinary driver on the road has in their thoughts threatened a bus driver at some time. One of those cases were the judge should have considered public opinion. Being a bus driver is only one step worse than being a traffic warden everbody hates them. Thats unless you have a free bus pass of course.

its five years I think after which the council cannot object or evict on planning grounds. Once finished though Teignbridge could claim the central government bonus for providing affordable houses. Barratts should be told to build their sheds up there instead of at Newlands at least they would visually fit in with the old buses and caravans allready there. Just another local authority joke .
