'Unfair decision for widows to make' over police pension

Pension rules for police widows in Wales and England have been called "antiquated" and "manifestly unfair".

Under current rules, some widows and widowers can lose their pension if they remarry or live with a new partner.

Mel Jones, of North Wales Police Federation, has called for regulations to be brought into line with Northern Ireland, which grants all police widows a pension for life.

It comes as a petition on the issue has attracted more than 115,000 signatures.

The Home Office has said some changes have been made.
