Isles of Scilly to appear in ITV documentary tonight

The Isles of Scilly is to feature in a new prime-time documentary starting tonight.

Devon and Cornwall Cops gives a behind-the-scenes view of life for the Westcountry's police force, which covers the largest geographical area in England.

The first episode, A Very Scilly Royal Visit, follows the islands' police officers as they prepare for the visit of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge to the islands last September.

It also accompanies the counties' officers on patrol as they deal with summer traffic and joins the hunt for big cats on Dartmoor.

Subsequent episodes show "new canine recruits starting their training, the policing of major events in the region such as the Devon Derby in Exeter and Boardmasters Festival in Cornwall, and follows frontline staff as they go on the beat in towns and cities including Ilfracombe, Padstow, Plymouth and Torquay".

Devon and Cornwall Police Chief Constable Shaun Sawyer said: “This documentary offers a fantastic chance for the public to see how our Force deals with the demand for service from local communities and visitors alike, as well as affording a rare view into the lives of officers and staff who live and bring up their families within the communities they serve."

The four-part series, narrated by Neil Morrissey, was filmed last summer.

The first episode airs at 8pm tonight on ITV.
