Devon & Cornwall PCC: 'Simply unfair' lack of funds for policing

Devon and Cornwall's Police and Crime Commissioner has written to the government to ask for fairer funding for his police force.

Tony Hogg says the force will lose a further £24 million under the government's funding policy.

He says it doesn't account for the increase in population in the summer months, and puts the police force at a disadvantage because it covers such a large area.

"Some of the policing that the public has come to terms with over decades in terms of neighbourhood policing, or roads policing, look like they would be unsustainable if we can't overturn these proposals from the government - which are simply unfair to Devon and Cornwall."

Police have made an appeal after a snooker cue, signed by legends of the game, including five-time world champion Ronnie O'Sullivan, was stolen in Plymouth.

Stuart Craig won it in a raffle. On his way back from showing off his prize to his mother - a man ran up to him and snatched it.

Mr Craig then paid the man £20 to get it back - but the thief ran off with the money and the cue.
