Violent crime was up 37% in the last year. Police say it's mainly due to a change in how offences are recorded.
Dorset's Peter Wilson Celebrates Gold
Shooting star Peter Wilson has claimed Britain's fourth gold medal of London 2012 in the men's double trap.
The 25-year-old farmer's son from Sherborne led from start to finish at the Royal Artillery Barracks.
Wilson, the world record holder and world number two in the event, was three points ahead going into Thursday's (2nd August) final after three qualifying rounds.
And in a tense final shoot-out Wilson missed five shots, including a double as he closed in on gold.
But his opponents could not take advantage and the Briton eventually finished two clear of Sweden's Hakan Dahlby with a total score of 188 out of 200 shots fired.
Wilson only took up competitive trap shooting in 2006 after a shoulder injury suffered while snowboarding prevented him from playing squash and cricket.
He smashed the world record in Arizona in March, scoring an incredible 198, and is now Britain's first shooting medallist since Richard Faulds won gold in the same event in Sydney 12 years ago.
