Cameras will also be issued to selected officers in Bridport and Weymouth as part of a six-month pilot. 

The force said the devices would make the police "even more transparent and [enable] officers to be even more accountable for their actions".  

It added the cameras would also provide opportunities to capture evidence, therefore "speeding up prosecutions and encouraging early guilty pleas".

If successful the trial, which is being run in partnership with Devon and Cornwall Police, will be rolled out across the force.

Student's video adopted by US band

A film created by a University of Portsmouth student in a tribute to one of his favourite bands has been adopted as their official video.

Oliver Moore made the stop-motion film using Lego for the song Headlights by We Are Scientists.

He said, within a few hours, he'd received an email from the band asking if they could use it.
