More than £1m has been allocated to help Plymouth recover from the Keyham tragedy.

The mass shooting in August saw Jake Davison kill five people and injure two more.

Minister for crime, policing and justice Kit Malthouse said the initial funding would support the ongoing recovery effort including £800,000 into community safety and policing, £300,000 for additional support services for the victims and witnesses, and an additional 130 spaces for local mental health services.

Luke Pollard, MP for Plymouth Sutton and Devonport, said: 'Over the past few weeks I’ve been making the case to Ministers for this cross-party bid for funding to provide Keyham with the long-term support we need, so this announcement is very welcome.

'This is just the start though. The support put into Keyham and Ford has been incredible so far but we will need Government to help us sustain it.

'We will continue to press ministers for confirmation of the support we need from their departments.'
