Police chief in armed civilians row
A police chief has found herself at odds with her own force by saying she would look into whether gun owners could act as armed civilians in the event of a terror attack.
Alison Hernandez, Devon and Cornwall's police and crime commissioner, was on a BBC Radio Cornwall phone-in when a caller suggested the idea.
Ms Hernandez said she would "really be interested" in exploring the issue.
The force said armed civilians would risk being caught in the crossfire.
