Otter Motors welcomed residents to have a look round its new garage at the old Otter Coaches depot on Finnimore Industrial Estate on Saturday.

Ottery’s Town Crier Laurie Palmer was among the guests at the event, which was attended by more than 70 people.

Tom Cook, director of Otter Motors, said: “It’s taken just over two years to get where we have got to. We started with one Mini and now we have 40 in stock. We do work hard, seven days a week.

“It went very well, the weather helped and a lot of people that came were people from local businesses showing their support.”

Tom thanked Mill Street business Wall Art for their help to design signs ahead of the opening.
