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.

The work on the hut should be completed today. Credit: ITV News
