BUDLEIGH Salterton Town Council has voted against taking on the financial responsibility of the Longboat Cafe seafront shelter .

The members recently discussed the feasibility of taking on the concrete shelter from East Devon District Council, who currently is responsible for its upkeep and running.

Instead the councillors are to lobby the district council to improve conditions at all its shelters.

Town council clerk Jo Vanstone said: "The council has decided not to take on the responsibility of the shelter on the seafront but it has put in a request to East Devon District Council to clean it up, and all the shelters along the seafront.
