POLICE in Honiton are to investigate a claim that a man who tried to report an incident of criminal damage was turned away from the town's police station.
Councillor Ron Farnham told Honiton Town Council last week that he was concerned the man was told there was nothing police could do.
It was alleged the man's car was damaged while left in Lace Walk car park.
Councillor Farnham questioned whether the police response could distort crime figures for Honiton.
