RNLI warning to Respect the Water during ‘deadliest’ month at the south west coast
Devon Lanes Booby-Trapped
Lanes around the East Devon village of East Budleigh are being turned into potential death-traps by a mystery saboteur.
Wire has been stretched across the lane, widths of iron and steel have been hidden along the path, branches have been stuck out to catch riders and even barbed wire has been coiled into the lane.
The booby-traps started being laid earlier this year in the right of way between Frogmore Lane and the main Budleigh Salerton Road. That lane has since been cleared by the Trail Riders Fellowship, but the problem has moved to another lane often used by schoolchildren.
The latest incident happened this weekend when a cyclist was caught by cut branches draped into the pathway.
Postman Mark Fishwick of Vicarage Lane had a narrow escape earlier this year when he spotted a stretched wire at head height just in time to stop.

Mark says the person who is responsible should stop now, before someone is seriously hurt.
