A police station in Cornwall has been reopened this morning after it became damaged and dangerous by recent high winds on Friday.

The roof of Bodmin Police Station has been described as "insecure" and members of the public have been asked not to go there.

The damage was caused in the recent high winds and stormy weather, but it is business as usual in the building today.

A spokesman for the Office of the Police and Crime Commissioner for Devon and Cornwall said: “The roof to the Bodmin Police Hub was damaged by high winds on the afternoon of Friday, March 15, and the decision was taken to vacate the premises.

“Over the weekend police officers were able to operate from nearby offices while contractors undertook remedial works to the roof.

“The building was reopened for business this morning (Monday, March 18) and is fully operational.”
