Reach South West audience and content director Jacqui Merrington said: “We’ve always had a strong relationship with North Devon through our print titles and DevonLive, since its inception, has been a keen advocate for North Devon, campaigning for improvements to the North Devon Link Road, which resulted in £60million of investment.

“North Devon Live will enable us to strengthen our focus here even further and as someone whose family are from Bideford I’m particularly delighted with this new launch.

“Our new team in George Thorpe, Alex Davis and Ami Wyllie, supported by Lewis Clarke and the wider Devon Live team, will provide a vibrant news and features service that will capture the best of North Devon and continue to report and campaign on the stories that matter to the people who live here.”
