The PM referred to Lincolnshire when he was asked a question about funding for police forces during a live TV interview ahead of May's General Election.

A member of the audience quoted Chief Constable Neil Rhodes who said the force was on the "verge of collapse."

In his reply, Mr Cameron said: "I do not accept that. I understand they are under pressure."

When it comes to Lincolnshire, crime has come down, the police are doing a great job but there is more we can do using modern technology to make sure crime continues to fall under this Government and if we do that we will be saving money as well.

– David Cameron
