Fears that bovine TB could be heading north. New measures announced to stamp out the disease

There are question marks over the futures of Mansfield Woodhouse Police Station.
It has been earmarked for possible closure due to save money as it costs £50,000 a year to operate.
The plans have yet to be finalised by Police and Crime Commissioner Paddy Tipping, who is seeking the public's views.
Listening to the public is one of my greatest responsibilities as Commissioner and I am keen to reassure residents that no final decision will be taken on this issue until they have been given an opportunity to communicate their views.
These proposals have been drawn up in the interests of local taxpayers in a bid to use their hard-earned money more effectively so that the current financial pressures do not result in a deterioration of service levels. The unfortunate reality is that underused and empty buildings are costing the Force thousands of pounds every year - and people tell me they want bobbies not buildings. This money could be better spent on additional police officers and PCSOs to maintain visibility in our communities.
– Paddy Tipping, Nottinghamshire Police and Crime Commissioner
Tough choices need to be made as to how we can release vital funds to invest in the areas which will make our communities safer.
I am open to all options in the pursuit of delivering high-quality, value for money policing. Closing police stations is not a decision to be taken lightly and is understandably met with anxiety among the public however we must protect our physical capacity and resilience at all costs to ensure we remain able to cope with the risks emerging within our communities.
Under the proposals, the current Safer Neighbourhood Team and CID would relocate to Mansfield Police Station.
An information event has been arranged by the Commissioner which will take place today, starting at 10.00am, at Northfield Focus Point. Commissioner Tipping is also due to launch a consultation exercise inviting residents to comment before a final decision is made.
