Home Secetary lobbied about funding for Lincolnshire police

Priti Patel says she's aware of the challenges the force faces

The Home Secretary says she's listening to concerns about Lincolnshire police's funding.

Priti Patel has been lobbied on the issue, however during an election visit to the county last night she said said she was unable to commit to make changes, due to purdah rules during the election.

The Lincolnshire Force is widely claimed to receive the second lowest level of grant funding per head of population.

Meanwhile, the Home Secretary has said she'll increase the number of Seasonal Agricultural Workers from 2-and-a-half-thousand to 10 thousand - within the next year to ease Brexit fears of Lincolnshire's farmers
