The government insists crime in Cornwall is not going up because police numbers are going down.

It rose three percent across the southwest last year, as a hundred officers were taken off the streets.

Policing minister Nick Herbert reckon it is not an excuse.

He said: "Devon and Cornwall know that they have a challenge, and that they need to get back on top of crime and deliver the reductions in crime that we had previously seen in the previous three years."

Mr Herbert adds other areas are managing it: "For example, Cambridgeshire has experienced a five point four percent fall in police officer numbers, about the same as Devon and Cornwall, but has successfully delivered a nine percent reduction in crime."
