Argyle's two Reid's destroy Dagenham

Plymouth Argyle were the region's only winners today.

Yeovil Town were unable to build on their two straight wins last week. They lost 1-0 at home to second-from-bottom Colchester, who leap-frog the Glovers in the table.

Plymouth Argyle have moved up to fifth in League Two after a comfortable 3-0 win over Dagenham and Redbridge. Reuben Reid scored twice, with his namesake, Bobby, also on-target at Home Park. The Pilgrims are now three points behind the automatic promotion places.

Exeter City have suffered their first defeat in 10 league games. The Grecians were beaten 1-0 at Stevenage. The only goal of the game was scored six minutes from time. Paul Tisdale's men are eighth in the table - just outside the play-off places on goal difference.

And in the Conference, Torquay United lost 2-0 at Braintree. The Gulls failed to test the home goalkeeper in a disappointing performance.

Newquay's traditional Huer's Hut restored

The hut had a crucial role in the fishing industry.

Repairs are due be completed today on one of Newquay's Huer's Huts.

Situated on Towan Head, the hut dates from the 19th Century, and was used by lookouts to spot shoals of pilchards in Newquay Bay. The work has cost £30,000.

It is hoped the wraps can come off early in January.

More than 130 jobs have been saved after the sale of troubled bus company Western Greyhound.

A bus and coach entrepreneur, Michael Bishop, has bought the remainder of the business and will continue to run 65 buses in Devon and Cornwall from its freehold Summercourt depot, together with a small leased outstation at Wadebridge.

Last week Western Greyhound sold its Liskeard operation to Plymouth Citybus.

The company has a very exciting future ahead of it and will continue to be a well-respected local independent operator.

We have identified areas of the business that would benefit from further development and investment to strengthen the commercial future of the company.
