There are fears parts of Cornwall could be heading for a CCTV blackout.

The council is cutting funding for systems across the Duchy.

In Truro equipment on top of the police station is due to be pulled down next year when the current building is demolished.

The city's Inspector, Mark Richards, said: "Nobody would willingly withdraw from CCTV. Nobody would want to see Truro without CCTV or, indeed, any of the communities in Cornwall without CCTV. These are difficult times with difficult decisions to take.

"I think there's going to be a way to sort it out - but what the answer is, as yet I don't know. I don't have a magic wand and I don't have the money to fund it myself but there is an awful lot of goodwill out there to sort it out.

"It is not going to be just a Truro issue. There are the same problems and issues being discussed across the county.

"In a worst case scenario it would cause us some significant difficulties, especially in towns where you've got a lot of daytime crime in the form of shoplifting and night time crime in the form of night time economy related drunkenness. We rely quite heavily on CCTV provision."
