Nearly half of Britain's "most expensive" seaside towns are in the South West - according to a new survey.

A French fishing vessel which capsized in Dartmouth Harbour nearly 3 weeks ago is to be lifted away by a salvage vessel later today.Read the full story ›
There's still no decision on how to refloat a French fishing boat which capsized in a Dartmouth harbour.
The St Christophe was one of three French vessels which sought shelter from storms last week. Ten crew members had to be rescued when two of the boats listed heavily.
The harbour says it is working with the insurance company to try to restore the vessel "as soon as possible"
Certain areas of South Embankment are not available to the public due to the fenced cordon around the vessel. The fence is in place to protect the public because of the machinery and to protect the operators.
We also need to be ready to react should there be a sudden loss of fuel from the vessel to minimise serious environmental damage to the harbour environment.
The fuel remains on board the vessel in fuel tanks and very little has escaped. The harbour says it will continue to maintain a pollution control effort and is closely monitoring the situation.
"Currently the safest solution is considered to be to recover the vessel complete with its fuel.
In the meantime Dart Harbour remains open for business as usual and is looking forward to welcoming lots of visitors over Easter."
It's still not clear when a fishing boat that capsized in Dartmouth Harbour will be removed.Read the full story ›
