The force said most of it went on extra staffing.

Assistant Chief Constable Paul Netherton said: "£150,000, for the scale of the policing operation, was not a significant amount. And I think in terms of what it did for Cornwall, and what it did for the country, it was money well spent.

"There's something like £3,500,000 was bought into Cornwall just from that one day when it was there. And of course the legacy, the wonderful shots you had, that's a real benefit to the county."
