A reader from way down west has taken this photograph of his local news paper.

Following on from Eric Pickles’ announcement their photographer waltzed into North Devon’s Council Chamber on Tuesday 2nd July and set up his tripod.

Council leader Brian Greenslade praised the Journal “for making the most of the new law”. He said: “The fact the Journal are doing this is a step in the right direction so people who don’t have time to come and sit in and hear their business being discussed can click on to the internet and watch.” And be bored to death presumably, but that is not the point.

The North Devon Journal’s web page gives the full story and allows you to view the video.
