Walking boots users could be affected by clay pigeon shooting

A group is fighting against the intentions of a clay pigeon shooting company in order to protect the interests of those who use walking boots in the area.

The Open Spaces Society says Southdown Adventure Limited is wrong to ask for a change in regulations over the pursuit.

Torridge District Council permitted the body to organise clay pigeon shooting events at Yarnscombe, close to Bideford in Devon, but not on Sundays or Mondays.

Now it is applying to have the rules altered so that weekend shooting is acceptable and Mondays are allowed instead of Tuesdays.

"There are few places in this area of agricultural land and narrow lanes where people can walk, ride and cycle safely and undisturbed. Lashingcott Lane is one of them," states the society's general secretary Kate Ashbrook.

Another part of Devon – Plymouth Hoe – was described as "fascinating" by a contributor to the Daily Telegraph this week.ADNFCR-2803-ID-800429120-ADNFCR
