Sgt Colin Taylor and his family have left the Isles of Scilly after five years.

Sgt Taylor, his wife Sarah and their children departed the islands on this afternoon's Scillonian.

They were filmed by a camera crew from upcoming ITV show Devon and Cornwall Blues, which has been following Scilly's police staff since Wednesday.

The three-part series looks at how the Devon and Cornwall force 'tackles the unique challenge of policing over 700 miles of coastland, wild moorland and bustling towns'.

The camera crew will follow Sgt Taylor to Exeter as he begins his new role as Detective Sergeant Investigating Online Child Exploitation.

Writing on the Isles of Scilly Police Facebook page yesterday, Sgt Taylor said that it had been an 'honour and a privilege' to serve the islands' community.
