WATCH: Farron calls for police cuts to be scrapped

Westmorland and Lonsdale MP and Liberal Democrat Leader Tim Farron wants the Government to change the way it calculates police budgets, after it was found Cumbria Police could lose up to £31million.

He launched his campaign today after the policing minister had to delay cuts to police forces when an error was found in the calculations.

Tim Farron says a delay isn't good enough. He wants the cuts to be scrapped and he's asking people to sign a petition to that effect.
