A new scheme to tackle the problem of Dartmoor's overbreeding ponies begins today. World Horse Welfare is teaming up with The Friends of The Dartmoor Hill Pony and local vets to provide a group of 20 mares with a contraceptive injection.
The semi-feral ponies will be first rounded up into a holding area where they will be micro-chipped and also marked so that they are identifiable at a distance. They will then be given the injection, and four weeks later a second dose will be administered.
Text Santa is organising the Biggest Bag Pack Ever for 6 UK based charities. They will help and support someone near you this Christmas.
Parking charges in Torbay have been cut in a bit to encourage more shoppers to the area.
Thousands turn out for the Boscastle Festival.
