Cllr Neil Jory Leader of West Devon Borough Council said: "I know it will be desperately disappointing for many people that, as part of a wider Devon grouping - including Plymouth and Torbay - we have been placed in Tier 2.  Everyone has been disciplined in keeping to the regulations resulting in falls to infection rates over recent days. 

I really hope that will continue and ask everyone to keep following the guidance so that, hopefully, we can keep driving the rates down so that we can look forward to next year with a sense of optimism and hope".
