Green: Police Federation reputation 'at lowest point'

The reputation of the Police Federation is "as low as it can possibly be", policing minister Damian Green has said.

He told the Today programme that claims of a culture of bullying within the organisation "damages" public support for the police as a whole.

His comments come as a Home Affairs Committee report called for urgent reform within the Police Federation.

First broadcast on BBC Radio 4's Today programme on Friday 16 May.
