LIBERAL Democrat and long-serving councillor David Cox has retained his seat for Teignmouth West.

Speaking on the win, David said: 'I'm very pleased, I'm hoping this is a good night for the Liberal Democrats and so far, it seems to be. Hopefully we can go on to also take the seat in the general election.

'We have lots of work to do, we need to support a lot more people, but that's what the Liberal Democrats do. Hopefully, we're on track to retain control of Teignbridge District Council.'
