Home secretary to end public funding of Police Federation

The Police Federation will stop receiving public funding from this summer, the home secretary has told the organisation's annual conference.

Theresa May said it was "not acceptable" that the organisation received public funds when it was sitting on "vast reserves" worth tens of millions of pounds.

She told the Federation that a programme of reform was essential, adding: "If you do not change of your own accord we will impose change on you".
