A North Devon group famous for building enormous bonfires with novelty scenes and figures will be setting fire to their latest creation tonight.

This re-creation of the Children's TV village Trumpton will be set alight later this evening.

Around 20,000 people are expected, while raising thousands for charity.

Remembering Torrington's greatest bonfires

On Saturday night, a small North Devon market town will burn down a model village based on the 1970's children's television classic 'Trumpton'. It's been recreated in Torrington by a group of volunteers and it's all part of the town's tradition of huge bonfires.

For the past 40 years, local men and women have created the incredible displays - which include a replica of HMS Victory and the Great Fire of London.

Here are some of the best ones:

The UK's only climbing wall event on water returns to Exeter this weekend - Deep Water Solo 2015.

As this film from The Quay Climbing Centre shows, climbers from across the country will compete on a wall built over the city's quay.

They don't use ropes - and either make it to the top - called 'topping out' - or fall into the water below.

Work starts today on Exmouth beach to try to fix a giant sink hole. Engineers believe a blocked water pipe underneath the beach is responsible. The two metre hole has opened a number of times over the last two months - especially after heavy rain.

“We are working with the tides, so digging will start as early as possible in the morning. We’re very confident we can resolve this problem and open up that area of the beach again for everyone to enjoy.”

Local Labour councillor Chaz Singh says he's galvanising both young and old - but still says that people are having to 'come out' as his supporters because of the negative coverage.
