A report warns one in five crimes in Cornwall and Devon are not being recorded properly.

Inspectors randomly checked 117 incidents.

They found only 98 were right.

The force says it is already made changes.

Across the country teams found one in four sex attacks are being missed.

A new national report brands that "indefensible".

Deputy Chief Constable Bill Skelly said: "It is important to say this about recording practices not about how we treat victims or actually investigate crime; we focus very heavily on protecting the vulnerable and have a good satisfaction level of how people experience our service.

"The national report highlights a number of very serious sexual offences which they found in some forces had been miss-recorded or under recorded, that isn't the case for findings in Devon and Cornwall, that said we are keen to improve and make sure our recording practices are the best they can be."
