Full report: Cleveland Police to lose officers

The Chief Constable of Cleveland Police is warning that additional spending cuts will force her staff to grade non-emergency police calls in order of their importance.

The Teesside service has already slashed £15 million from its budget but has since discovered it must make an extra £5 million of enforced savings over the next two years.

It means front line officers are facing redundancy.
