Crime is up in Honiton, according to latest figures for the town.

For the period between December 10 and January 14, the total number of recorded crimes was 68, compared to 59 during the same period last year.

Criminal damage, assaults and thefts topped the latest figures - there were 19 criminal damage incidents, 12 assaults and 10 ‘other’ thefts.

PCSO Barry Redford told Honiton Town Council at a meeting last week that the criminal damage figures related to a spate of incidents where cables were cut from satellite dishes.

In addition, there were two drug offences and two cases of driving with excess alcohol.
