High Streets across the West Country have again been packed with shoppers today, all looking for a bargain. Many retailers have already reported figures for the Boxing Day sales yesterday were up on last year. Somer shoppers in Plymouth weren't after a bargain - just a day out.

YOUR STORIES: the surprising swaps in your online shops

The supermarket later sent along the wipes, leaving one very happy customer.
