A rise in youth crime has coincided with a "huge drop" in youth service funding, a police and crime commissioner (PCC) has said.

Dorset's youth crime rates have risen for two years, as national rates fell.

Statistics show 344 young people per 100,000 entered the youth justice system in Dorset for the first time in 2017/18, compared with a national average of 237.

Dorset PCC Martyn Underhill said cuts led to anti-social behaviour.
