Yvette Cooper: 'Police will be overstretched'

Changes to pay and conditions will not help "overstretched police forces", according to shadow home secretary Yvette Cooper.

An independent review of police pay and conditions in England and Wales has called for the abolition of a series of allowances and special payments.

Tom Winsor's report recommends making savings of £60m a year in overtime.

Officers on front-line duties could see their pay rise but 40% face wage cuts of up to £4,000 a year.
