We are stunned to hear the news of the Manchester Attack last night and our thoughts are with all those affected, their friends and family. We have received a bulletin from Devon and Cornwall Police as follows:
I am sure you are all aware of the terror attack last night in Manchester.
This email is to offer reassurance to our communities, please could I ask you all to spread the message that Devon and Cornwall Police are committed to support our communities and we encourage any concerns or incidents to be reported at the earliest opportunity.
Below are all the ways to contact us.
Our thoughts are with the families and friends of those lost and injured and with emergency service colleagues who responded.

On Thursday last week, many local residents headed for their polling stations and cast their votes for their preferred candidate to represent them on Devon County Council and in some cases, Exeter City Council as well. The local winners are as follows:
Devon County Council
Alphington & Cowick - Yvonne Atkinson (Labour)
Exwick & St Thomas - Rob Hannaford (Labour)
Exeter City Council by election (following the death of Cllr Paul Bull)
St Thomas - Heather Morris (Labour)
St Thomas Community Association retains a strictly neutral political stance and works together with our local councillors to make a better St Thomas for everyone regardless of their party allegiance.
