The cost of policing next year's Tour de France in Yorkshire has been raised by both North Yorkshire's Crime Commissioner Julia Mulligan and the Colne Valley MP Jason McCartney.
Three Yorkshire forces will be among those providing hundreds of officers on July 5 and 6 next year to ensure the safety of spectators and cyclists on the opening days of the sport's most famous race.
North Yorkshire Police is responsible for 60 per cent of the route and Julia Mulligan says the event would leave her force with a bill of more than half a million pounds.
Colne Valley MP Jason McCartney earlier raised the issue in the House of Commons - and got short shrift from Sports Minister Hugh Robertson.
