Radical policing shake-up to be announced

Plans for a massive shake-up in policing in England and Wales are set to be outlined by the home secretary.

A new national crime-fighting agency, likely to be dubbed Britain's FBI, is among Theresa May's proposals.

People will also be able to vote in two years' time for locally-elected officials to oversee each police force.

The Serious Organised Crime Agency (Soca) is expected to be scrapped just four years after it was set up by Labour.

Andy Tighe reports.
