Report highlights the impact cuts will have on policing

Lincolnshire Police are named as a force who will be affected

Linconlshire police has been named as one of three forces that might not be able to offer a proper service because of budget cuts.

Figures from Her Majesty's Inspectorate of Constabulary show nationally there could be 6 thousand fewer front line police officers.


A fifth of front counters in police stations will also close.

Shadow Home Secretary Yvette Cooper says " the government should be cutting crime - not the police."
