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.

A man is in a critical condition in hospital in Cornwall after acid was thrown in his face.

It happened in Carrine Road in Truro on Tuesday afternoon.

The 29-year-old victim was attacked in his own home by an unknown man.

The man was taken to Treliske Hospital, Truro, with life-threatening facial injuries, where he remains in a critical condition.

FA Cup: Yeovil Town 'in the hat' but Argyle are out

No wins for our teams today.

Yeovil Town will be 'in the hat' for Monday's FA Cup Third Round draw, after a 1-1 stalemate at Accrington Stanley.

Jordan Clarke put the Glovers ahead on the half hour, but the League Two side forced a replay with a 64th minute equaliser.

Plymouth Argyle have been knocked out of the cup after losing 3-0 at League One high-flyers Sheffield United. Reuben Reid blasted a penalty over the bar early in the second half. That miss proved costly as the home side then scored two penalties of their own through Jose Baxter, before Marc McNulty added a third in the 90th minute.

In League Two, Exeter City grabbed a late equaliser in a 1-1 draw with promotion rivals Burton Albion at St James Park. The visitors went ahead on the hour, but Christian Ribeiro rescued a point with an 87th minute header.

And in the Conference, Torquay United lost 2-1 at home to league leaders Barnet. Both sides ended the match with 10 men - Aaron Downes was sent off for the Gulls shortly after former Argyle man Bondz N'Gala received his marching orders. The visitors scored twice in the first half, before Courtney Richards' consolation in stoppage time.

Late tries result in defeats for Albion & Pirates

Both Albion and the Pirates were winning until late converted tries.

Plymouth Albion are out of the British and Irish Cup after losing 18-16 at home to Carmarthen. Albion's Lewis Warner scored the first try of the match, but a late converted try won the game for the Welsh side.

And a last minute converted try gave Doncaster victory over the Cornish Pirates. A thrilling game ended 31-30 to the visitors, with both sides scoring four tries apiece.
