46 police officers in Malvern in Worcestershire have been given body-worn video cameras.

It is part of a £1 million investment by West Mercia Police.

The force plans to roll the technology out to all of its frontline officers and staff by the end of the year.

Video captures events in a way that cannot be represented in written statements: footage helps to show the real impact a crime can have on victims.

It provides us with high quality evidence to share with colleagues and our partners to give us the best chance to secure a conviction in court.
