    While the rest of the news websites have been diligently reporting in great detail the worst floods in the region in living memory, South Devon's local press have decided to stay in bed this Sunday. They consistently and regularly fail to report on anything of any importance in the region - police commissioner campaigns for example - and yet are quite happy to report on someone's chip pan nearly catching fire in Brixham and open the flood gates to the lowest common denominator in the region by allowing them to make inane, petty and destructive marks on pretty much anything of no significance in its online comments sections. This newspaper is miserably fail their readership and should be thoroughly ashamed of itself.
