STAFF at an Exmouth shop have been helping people melt away their January blues.

Thorntons, in Rolle Street, were giving away free chocolate to sweet-toothed shoppers last Monday, January 18 - a date judged to be the most depressing day of the year.

The giveaway was to help mark the launch of a new type of chocolate.

Stuart Renshaw, Thorntons' head of brand, said: "Working with chocolate there is never a depressing day at Thorntons.

"We wanted to keep our customers in good spirits too, so what better way to keep them happy than to give them free chocolate.

"Our new twist wrapped brand Melts is the perfect antidote to those January blues.
