YOUNGSTERS in Axbridge are appealing for a skate ramp to be set up in the town.

Teenagers claim there is nothing for them to do and nowhere for them to pursue their hobby in the area.

But town councillor Pauline Ham said the council has already put four piles of dirt in the corner of The Furlong for the youngsters to turn into a BMX track.

Cllr Ham said: "They were put there at the request of the youngsters who wanted to design their own track.
