The councillor who is staying analogue in a digital world

When it comes to local government, Devon County councillor Percy Prowse prefers to do things the old-fashioned way.

He only has a landline phone (with no answer phone) - no emails, no social media, no internet.

Instead, he hand types a regular newsletter on his vintage typewriter, and goes to meet community members on his bicycle.
