Sidmouth pensioner wins bus stop battle

HE waited for seven months and now two have come along at once.

Sidmouth pensioner George Harris has won his fight for a decent bus shelter in a Sidmouth residential area.

George, 86, of Le Locle Close, wanted seated stops to benefit the elderly and young mums - and to protect residents from the elements.

County highways chief Stuart Hughes said this week he hoped the items would be installed in the near future.

Councillor Hughes said that two bus shelters, to be situated on either side of the road at the top of Stowford Rise, would be put in place soon.

Members unanimously backed the proposal when they met on Monday.
