The police watchdog has launched an investigation after a man suffered serious burns in an incident involving a police Taser.
The Independent Police Complaints Commission (IPCC) said the incident, involving Devon and Cornwall Police, occurred in Honicknowle, Plymouth on Thursday 18 April.
A 32-year-old man was taken to Derriford Hospital but later transferred to the specialist burns unit at Frenchay in Bristol.
The spokesman said the man's condition was "life-changing, but is not considered to be life-threatening".
The investigation will look at to what extent, if any, police actions caused or contributed to the man's injuries, and whether police acted in accordance with procedures.
