Police Federation must change, says independent review

The Police Federation of England and Wales should be changed from "top to bottom", an independent panel has said.

The damning report found a "worrying loss of confidence and competence" within the federation and a "serious loss of influence" outside.

It said the way the federation, which represents officers, had opposed police reforms and launched personal attacks were "strategic failures".

Tom Symonds reports.
