The cost of electing Devon and Cornwall's first Police Commissioner was less than half the predicted figure.

The Conservative, Tony Hogg, fought off nine other candidates to take the post last year. It's been revealed the process cost £800,000 rather than the £1.9 million predicted by local authorities.

Devon and Cornwall had more candidates than anywhere else nationwide.
