Liberal Democrats to fight Devon and Cornwall police commissioner election

Good news from the South West - and I don't mean the repeal of the pasty tax.

This is Cornwall reports that the Lib Dems are to contest the Devon and Cornwall police commissioner election in November:
Adrian Sanders, Liberal Democrat MP for Torbay, said the party needed to be influencing the debate on cutting crime, but focusing on repeat offenders and involving victims of crime. 
He added: "The Police and Crime Commissioner is going to have a major influence on how our area is policed and how resources are deployed, and that will impact on everyone's lives."
I was critical of the party's decision not to fight these elections when it was announced last October.
