Plans to raise the policing part of council tax bills in Devon and Cornwall by 2% have been approved

The rise, approved by the force's Crime Panel, will mean an extra £3.19 per household per year.

Police and Crime Commissioner Tony Hogg said not raising the precept would have had a "major impact" on policing and numbers may have fallen "to well below 3,000" from about 3,500.

Mr Hogg said: "We are working hard to maintain officer numbers."
