Police in a Devon harbour town are to share an office with the harbourmaster as part of a month-long trial.

The move in Salcombe will see officers being stationed on the quay at Whitestrand, next to a main car park.

South Hams District Council said the move would concentrate services on the waterfront and would be a good contact point in the event of any marine crime.

Devon and Cornwall Police said the move would allow officers to be more central to the town's main focus of activity.
