Consultation over police service cuts nearly over

A consultation over plans to slash opening hours at Leicestershire Police's front counters is entering its final stage.

People in the county have just two weeks left to have their say on the proposals, which would see shorter opening times at 13 of the force's 17 manned police stations.

The front counter service at the other four locations - Syston, Lutterworth, Belgrave and Braunstone - would be closed completely.
