Occupy Exeter protesters have said fireworks were thrown at their campsite overnight.

The anti-capitalist activists said the fireworks were launched at about 03:00 GMT.

One person was pulled from a smoke-filled tent after a firework struck it, damaging the material, although no-one was injured, the protesters said.

Devon and Cornwall Police said they were called to the incident but had not made any arrests.
