PHOTO CHALLENGE: Each week we set our readers a photo challenge to have a go at and this week’s theme is ‘Nature’. We are looking for your favourite shots of flora and fauna from anywhere around East Devon. To enter go to www.iwitness24.co.uk and upload your images to the East Devon ‘Photo Challenge’ group and we’ll include them in an online gallery and possibly in print too.
