Signs and barriers will be in place where necessary and council officers will be monitoring the event throughout the day to ensure it runs smoothly and safely.

West Devon Borough Council's waste contractor, FCC Environment, along with WDBC staff will be back in town from 2am on Thursday to carry out a major clean up operation.

They will work throughout the early hours collecting rubbish in an effort to make the streets presentable by the time residents start their day.
