A new temporary deputy chief constable has been appointed by the Devon and Cornwall Police Authority.

David Zinzan was joining after being a commander in south-east London for the Metropolitan Police, the authority said.

He takes over the post from Shaun Sawyer, who is currently temporary chief constable of Devon and Cornwall.

Both men were in their new roles until a new police commissioner was elected in November, the force said.
