SIR - With reference to the letter Hunt 'ruined ride along Tarka Trail.' Alexis Lockhart and her family are old friends who called in to visit me after the above incident and they were all most upset by what had happened.I agree with her that, regardless of your views on hunting, no one should have to come across this scene when out for a pleasant cycle ride or walk.North Devon desperately needs tourists to return time and again and this sort of incident could well put people off visiting again.I would also like to thank the Gazette for publishing her letter on the website instead of just ignoring it as another publication has done.Sally Kingham, Landkey.
