A shop in Exeter selling legal highs has closed after the owners decided not to fight an order by police.
The Wicked Head shop was shut on Monday after complaints about the anti-social behaviour of some customers. Police say the store has now ceased trading.

There are a number of other stores in the city who do sell legal highs. At this time, this is the only store we have applied this legislation to because it is where the complaints have emanated from.
