MP calls for more police officers for Devon and Cornwall

A West Country MP says Devon and Cornwall police should be entitled to extra money to pay for a hundred more officers. The force is losing 700 officers and a further 500 staff due to budget cuts.

Dan Rogerson, MP for North Cornwall, told Parliament the way funding was worked out meant the force was being unfairly treated - and this will affect both morale and services.
