Devon and Cornwall Police insist they are cutting crime, after violent attacks went up by nearly a fifth.

Figures for the year leading up to June 2012 show a jump in sex offences, robberies and fraud too.

Officers said in the last six months, numbers have dropped.

Georgie Constable from Victim Support in the Duchy, said: "This isn't just about statistics, it's about the people, victims of crime and what happens to them. We need to look after the thousands of victims that there are that come to us for help.

"The biggest form of help that we give is emotional support. Somebody who understands what they feel and can offer them that listening so that they're heard, and victims need that, they need to be able to have somebody who's just there to listen to them."
