Cash seized from criminals is going to be pumped back into Cornish communities.

Twelve thousand pounds is up for grabs for groups who work in particular with young people.

It is hoped it will help boost local links and services.

Sergeant Jerry Mitchell, from Devon and Cornwall Police, said: "The young people are key to that for us, both in terms of positive activities that they can do within the community, and building for future generations with the stuff that will fall out of it.

"It's a way that we can generate good work within the community. Looking at bringing people together, especially working with young people, and really, to give some benefit back into the community from the criminal activities that have taken place."
