Crimes by the under 10s decrease
Crimes involving children under the age of 10 in Devon and Cornwall have halved in the last three years, according to figures obtained by the BBC.

The trend, between 2004-2007, is shown in figures released under the Freedom of Information Act.

Across the three years the most common offence was criminal damage. Assault and shoplifting accounted for the majority of other incidents.

Devon and Cornwall Police were one of 32 forces to release figures.
