Two buses were taken without permission from the Temple Street bus station in the early hours of March 2.

It is believed the thieves then raced the buses down the snowy street and crashed one of them into The Volunteer Inn, which has recently undergone a £180,000 refurbishment. The other vehicle was left outside the police station. The pair then fled the scene.

Neighbourhood Team Leader Sgt Andy Squires has released CCTV images from within the bus at the time of the incident.

Sgt Squires said: “Police wish to identify these two people in connection with a bus joy ride in Temple Street in Sidmouth on 1st March, during the snow.”
