There is a warning the closure of police front desks across Cornwall could put people off reporting crime.

The only places that have full time front offices in the Duchy are Bodmin, Truro, Camborne and St Austell.

It is after six shut last month.

Custody centres are under review too.

Pirate FM told you how a report is branding the 101 non-emergency line as "unacceptable."

Nigel Rabbits from the Police Federation in the Duchy said: "We do have some concerns about it because we have seen from experience that the public like to have the interaction with a human being, and it is only if our information technology is fully up to speed that that can be mitigated through the use of 101 and online forums.

"I think custody centres will have a major impact on my members, police officers deal in a difficult environment, the further you travel means the longer the officer is not available for other tasks, and also increases the risks for that officer."
