Norfolk Police used a Taser 76 times in the first half of this year according to new figures.

They record every time one was drawn from a holster in real life situation.

There were only 14 times where a taser was actually fired.

During the first 6 months of 2013, Tasers were drawn 91 times - in the first half of 2012, the figure was 36 times.

The figures have been up and down since Tasers were introduced in 2009, so it's being stressed that it's hard to draw conclusions.
