The Tour of Britain cyclists set off on the fifth leg of the competition on Thursday morning, taking in Exmouth, Budleigh Salterton and the surrounding villages.

Spectators turned out in force on Thursday morning to welcome the Tour of Britain to Exmouth as cyclists set off on the fifth leg of the competition.

The race quickly gathered momentum after leaving the seafront and passing through Salterton Road towards Budleigh Salterton.

At Four Firs, near Woodbury, the waiting crowd caught a glimpse of the competitors as they sped past on their way to Clyst St George and Topsham.

The ride is currently heading for Dartmoor and is expected to arrive at the finish in Exeter at around 3.30pm.
