Cameras will still run in Bideford but as of April there will be no operator for three days of the week.

Torridge District Council will be cutting down the amount of CCTV operating coverage from April 1.

Cameras will still operation but at certain times operator presence may be reduced.

Torridge sector inspector Phil Gray told Bideford Town Council last night (Thursday) this was based on demand.

He said: “The cameras will be running and panning but won’t be able to zoom in.
