There are more calls to keep police front desks in Cornwall open.

Six more have closed in places like Falmouth, Liskeard and Bude.

Police say keeping officers on our streets is the number one priority.

Campaigners have been protesting outside Penzance's station in a bid to change the decision.

Cornwall councillor Tim Dwelly started the petition: "I think it's a really silly cut. I don't think there's any sense to it at all because for the money saved the implication is going to be that many people in towns like Penzance just simply won't see the police as something they can relate to and people they can go to see.

"Calling 101 is all very well, but you're actually calling a call centre in Devon and the waiting times to get through to that have got 400% worse in the last few months. This is just not OK."
