Two more front counters will be closing at police stations in Nottinghamshire today.

The force has already shut down its front offices at Bulwell and Clifton, and today, the services will close at Broxtowe and Ollerton.

The closures are part of a cost-cutting initiative announced by Police and Crime Commissioner Paddy Tipping last year.

"Nottinghamshire Police is committed to providing the best service possible to the public and this means putting the right resources in the right place at the right time.

"As such the Force reviewed its police station front counters and the decision has been made to withdraw some of the services at our quieter stations."

Front offices will also be closed at Hucknall, St Ann's and Oxclose Lane over the coming weeks.

Nurse recruitment drive launched by Leicester hospitals

Hospitals in Leicester have been running a recruitment drive this weekend in a bid to find more nurses.

The initiative comes after a period of intense pressure on hospitals, particularly in accident and emergency departments.

It is hoped that the drive will enable the Leicester Royal Infirmary and University Hospitals of Leicester to attract more qualified staff, especially in specialised departments like theatres.
