Gwent Police crime levels defended after report

Gwent Police has defended its crime levels after a report suggested they may be up to 8% higher than official figures - which recorded the biggest fall in Wales and England last year.

Police and Crime Commissioner Ian Johnston ordered a review, which examined 50 selected incidents in July.

It found half of these were wrongly recorded for various reasons.

But the Gwent Police and Crime Panel heard officers did not manipulate any figures under pressure from management.

Paul Heavey reports.
