Tornado steam locomotive visits the South West

The famous Tornado steam locomotive has been travelling through Devon and Cornwall.

Tornado started out from London Paddington this morning and is due to arrive in Penzance this afternoon.

It's the first mainline steam locomotive built in the UK since 1960.

South West Water has been fined £150,000 for polluting a stream and a Devon beach at the height of the holiday season.

The water company admitted allowing sewage to flow down Dawlish beach during the August bank holiday in 2015.

It blamed blockages caused by people flushing wet wipes and also admitted killing fish by polluting Woodbury brook near Exmouth.
