Kent Police Authority agrees budget

The body that oversees policing in Kent has agreed a plan to make savings of about £45m over the next four years.

Kent Police Authority met in Maidstone to set its budget for the year ahead and discuss a restructure of the force.

Full details of the force's proposals are expected to be made public when staff have been informed of the changes on Thursday morning.

Chief Constable Ian Learmonth has previously said up to 1,500 jobs were potentially at risk.
