    Devon Liberal Democrats are calling for a real-terms pay rise for NHS workers after going above and beyond in a national crisis

    Cllr Julian Brazil, a member of the authority's Children's Services Scrutiny Committee and Lib Dem deputy group leader said:

    "The real-terms pay cut the government has put forward is an insult to all the NHS workers who have gone above and beyond during this time of national crisis. They are burned out, traumatised, and stressed after over a year caring for hundreds of thousands of severely ill Covid patients. On top of this, they have worked tirelessly to get as many people vaccinated as efficiently and as safely as possible.

    The clue is in the title. He served 31 years in the Devon and Cornwall Police retiring as a Detective Chief Inspector on the National Crime Squad and during that time investigated a lot of crime. Other parts of his service were in Uniform, CID and Special Branch.

    In short, he has lots of experience of all forms of policing having dealt with offenders and victims alike.
