The Police and Crime Commissioner for Devon and Cornwall is to answer questions from the public at an event in Exmouth.

Alison Hernandez will attend an open meeting which will take place at Exmouth Community College’s Telfer Centre on July 5, at 7pm.

Residents from Exmouth and the surrounding area will be able to question her on local issues.

Devon county councillor Richard Scott, who has organised the meeting with county councillor Jeff Trail and district councillor Jill Elson, said it was in response to issues raised by residents during campaigning ahead of the local elections which took place in May.

Cllr Scott said: “I am extremely happy we have been able to get her to come.

“It was a large part of our response and conversations that the residents of the ward felt ‘safe or very safe’ but wanted a more visible presence on the streets.”

Last month, the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) dropped an investigation into election spending by Ms Hernandez in 2015.

The CPS found there were no grounds for a criminal charge.
