Victims of crime in Cornwall are going to get more support.

Almost £600,000 has been given to the Duchy and Devon to bolster up projects.

The money is going to be used by charities who work with people to help them in the aftermath of a crime.

Our Police and Crime Commissioner Tony Hogg applied for it, he said: "These are of immense value to charities, and I think importantly will keep their motivation high and I think they'll think someone is listening and looking at the value they create.

"I'm thrilled because I know how hard many of the organisations that look to us for support have worked, and we've worked with them, I'm delighted to see that we've got one of the biggest awards in the UK."
