Police in Taunton say they're treating an attack on two Russian men as racially motivated. The pair were assaulted by three white men outside a Polish shop on East Reach.
PC Tim Mason, said: “We believe this was a racially motivated assault, and I am keen to speak to anyone who might have information as to the identity of the three suspects. We won’t tolerate any kind of hate crime in Taunton - as the Beat Manager for the area, I want to make that very clear
A footbridge dubbed the "missing link" over a river in Taunton has been completed.
The route over the River Tone at Longrun Meadow Country Park links Firepool Lock to the Silk Mills Park and Ride. The riverside path has no steps so is a crucial part of providing disabled-friendly access.
The project has seen several delays, but at least people will be able to avoid a lot of main roads and walk round Taunton on footpaths and through water meadows.
The bridge is made from traditional materials - and councillors say it's a "tremendous asset".
I have been very impressed by the workmanship using traditional high quality materials which look perfectly in place. The bridge is sturdy without being intrusive and is weathering well in its setting.
Most of all it will be welcomed by many in the community as an extension of the walking and cycling routes giving easier access to Longrun Meadow and the town centre.
