Two amateur North Devon photographers have sped into the final shortlist of this year’s national ‘Moto Foto’ competition. Jim Lowe, 68, from Bideford, and 55-year-old Paul Watts, from Shebbear, impressed the judges with their motorbike-themed photos, with both making the final 60.

Paul, the owner of four motorbikes, entered his picture of a Kawasaki Z1B taken in the Alps into the action category, while Jim, the owner of a Harley Davidson Sportster 72, entered a picture taken above Benidorm in April into the scenic category.

The overall winner will win £1,000 plus a top-of-the-range Nikon D7200 digital camera worth £1,200.

The top pictures will also feature in the official 2016 Carole Nash calendar.
