THE local elections on Thursday saw two South Devon Alliance (SDA) candidates elected to Buckland and Milber ward.

SDA councillors Alex Hall and Mike Ryan, alongside liberal democrat councillor Colin Parker, are to represent the ward on Teignbridge District Council.

Alex said: 'I'm speechless, I thought it was going to be a tight one but it's brilliant that I got in - I am going to be one of the only people under 25 in the chamber, so I'll be a voice for young people on the council.

Mike Ryan also of SDA, was also elected to Teignbridge District Council for Buckland and Milber ward.

Mike said: ''This is a brilliant result - I have represented Buckland for quite a few years and I'm looking forward to doing my best for the ward.'
