Pirate FM has learnt crime in Cornwall and Devon is up.

According to figures from The Crime Survey for England and Wales in the twelve months to December, robberies have increased by twelve percent - and burglaries by sixteen percent.

But the latest statistics for the year to March are expected to show that crime has shown an overall increase of around six percent.

Some are putting that down to a reduction in the number of officers on the streets as the force attempts to save money, in line with government cuts.

Chris Boarland is Chief Superintendent for the Duchy. He said, "We haven't seen that reduction really start to hit the streets yet. But, in any case, our priorities still will be that when people dial 999, when people report a crime they will get someone there. You can't put it down to one single reason. We've also got an economic downturn and unemployment."
