Surrey police station sale plan approved

Surrey Police Authority has agreed to the sale of six police stations in the county.

Surrey Police had recommended the sale of Ash, Frimley, Sunbury, Lingfield and Byfleet and Ripley stations.

The force said the sale of the stations would help it "prepare for the downturn in its finances".

The vacated buildings will be sold or handed back when their leases expire as the force attempts to save £52m over the next 10 years.

The authority agreed the proposals at a meeting on Thursday.
