ILFRACOMBE would "get its fair share" under a Conservative Government, according to Philip Milton, the party's Prospective Parliamentary Candidate for North Devon.

He was speaking in the town as he hosted a visit by Oliver Letwin MP, the Conservative Chairman of Policy Review, who toured the harbour and High Street to see what Ilfracombe had to offer and hear about some of the issues facing it.

Mr Milton also visited the My Start Children's Centre on Thursday morning, before meeting up with Mr Letwin to talk to Ilfracombe Harbour Master Rob Lawson and hear about regeneration challenges and opportunities facing the town. It was followed by a visit to the Ilfracombe Centre and a meeting.

Mr Letwin said Ilfracombe was a classic case of a coastal town which had been marginalised.
