Joyriders stole a pair of double-decker buses and raced them down a snowy Sidmouth street before crashing outside the police station.

The vehicles were taken without permission from the bus station on Temple Street late last night (Thursday).

The thieves crashed one of the buses into The Volunteer Inn, which has recently undergone a refurbishment, before abandoning the scene. The other vehicle was left outside the police station.

Sergeant Andy Squires said: “It is dangerous enough to do it in normal weather, let alone when it is snowing.”

He added enquires into a search to identify the culprits were ongoing.
