The Chief Constable of Thames Valley Police is warning the force could reach 'tipping point', as it prepares to make millions of pounds of savings.

Francis Habgood, who's announced he will retire from his role next March, has been setting out his priorities for the next few months.

He says the force is facing 'difficult decisions'.

The force needs to make savings of 14 million pounds over the next three years.

It has already saved around 99 million pounds since 2010. That's almost a quarter of the budget for next year.
