A 26 mile (42km) Devon cycle trail is a step closer to completion with the opening of a bridge at Topsham near Exeter.

The £2.5m bridge over the River Clyst is the latest link in the Exe Trail between Exmouth, Exeter and Dawlish.

It was built by Devon County Council as part of a national cycle route planned to link Kent with Cornwall.

Council officers are working with landowners to complete the Exe Trail at Powderham Castle.
