A brave adventurer went off-piste when he decided to ski down the streets of Bideford last night (Thursday).

While most were tucked up in bed warm last night, one brave adventurer took to the slopes of Bideford on his skis.

Leo Maunder, who owns Number 6 Taxis in Bideford, spent the evening giving lifts to people stuck in the town until 2am.

He then climbed up to the Pannier Market, donned his skis, and zipped down through the deserted, snowy streets.

Leo said: “I had to wait until the early hours of the morning so it was empty.
