One of Cornwall's new top cops pledges to do more to prevent crime.

Bill Skelly is starting as Deputy Chief Constable as budget cuts bite.

The Duchy and Devon force has already lost 700 officers.

But the new second in command is confident it will remain one of the safest areas in the country: "Particular things such as anti-social behaviour and offences such as criminal damage are ones that affect people. We as a policing organisation are committed to dealing with in a very active way that kind of crime that influences people's quality of life.

"Prevention is better than cure. We would want as an organisation to prevent more of this kind of behaviour. Not only to respond to incidents when they're brought to our attention and when they happen but also to intervene and to prevent them happening again in the future.
