Plans to create a joint control room for the Norfolk and Suffolk police forces will be discussed today.

The forces have to save £37 million over the next four years and the proposal to launch a joint control room is one of the suggestions being put forward.

Today, the chief constables for both forces will put their ideas to their two police and crime commissioners. If approved the scheme could lead to 70 job losses.
