Marrow donor list sees 200 Devon and Cornwall police join

Two hundred police officers in Devon and Cornwall have volunteered to join a bone marrow register after a recruitment campaign within the force.

Insp Dave Meredith of Devon and Cornwall Police had appealed to staff to register for the medical procedure.

The drive started in Cornwall earlier this year and then moved on to Devon at the start of the summer.

The volunteers from all ranks will remain on the register for at least 20 years or until they are aged 60.
