The government has pledged more than £3million to improve safety in Devon's prisons.

Prisons in Dartmoor, Exeter and Channings Wood are all set to benefit from the investment.

The money will go towards body-worn cameras, handcuffs and restraints.

The Prison Officers' Association have said the measures are "long overdue".
