There is a warning the the person who will run Cornwall's police will start in a "weak position."

It comes after it was revealed turn out for the Police and Crime Commissioner elections in the Duchy reached just fifteen percent.

Nigel Rabbits, Chair of the Devon and Cornwall Police Federation, claimed people did not know the candidates or understand what the job would entail.

He said: "I don't think their mandate is very strong. The public made it very clear that they have confidence in the Chief Constable's direction and control of the force, and I think their interest in politics within policing is shown to be very low.

"We're facing a massive central government budget cut of fifty million pounds. In the times of austerity, my members would question whether the money would be better spent in investing on actual visibility of police on the streets."
