It is revealed police from Cornwall and Devon will be sent to help cover the Olympics, despite massive cuts.  

The force says specialist officers will be scrambled to Dorset for this summer's Games.

By 2015, seven hundred officers are going to be axed.

Acting Chief Constable Shaun Sawyer insists it will not affect safety on our streets:

"In reality, policing is made up by the fact that we all support each other, and we've before sent officers to the riots last year that happened elsewhere in the UK, so yes we're doing it, yes we've planned for it, yes we can still provide a great service here.

"It's mostly specialist officers, we've redeployed our staff. The abstractions are less than they were last year, on a daily basis, to the public disorder we saw in other forces, so we can manage it, we really can manage it."
