Police in Cornwall and Devon have voted against plans to cut wages for some civilian staff.

Others would have seen a rise, under the pay and grading deal.

The Chief Constable has said he is disappointed.

In a statement Shaun Sawyer said: "The three recognised trade unions (GMB, Unison and Unite) have counted the votes of their respective ballots and have informed me that their members have voted to reject the grading and pay offer from the Force and OPCC.

"Clearly I am disappointed that members have voted not to accept the grading and pay offer and will now need to take some time to consult with the trade unions and work with the OPCC to understand the reasons behind the rejection before any further decisions are made.

"I have always made clear retaining our current grading and pay system is simply not an option. I will therefore need to consider how we will move forwards from here and ensure that we have a fair and equitable grading and pay system that is fit for purpose for the Force and the public we serve."
