Council tax in Devon's South Hams district is to go up by 2.5%.

South Hams District Council said it was increasing its share of the county council tax bill in 2012-13 to prevent cuts to frontline services.

Councillors said that government cash intended to help freeze tax for the next 12 months would still leave it with a £129,0000 shortfall in 2013-14.

The increase will mean an extra £3.36 a year for an average Band D property, a rise of 6.5p a week, it said.
