  1. 'More stop and search needed' says police chief

    Francis Habgood

    Thames Valley's Chief Constable says he wants to see more of his police officers using stop and search powers to tackle knife crime.

    Earlier this week the Home Secretary Sajid Javid said both police funding and stop and search powers were discussed in a meeting with the Prime Minister about the recent stabbings in London and Greater Manchester.

    Francis Habgood said the force had noticed officers in the area had been put off stopping people, but added he wanted them to use the powers more.

    He said: "Without doubt there has been a sense from our officers that they have been discouraged from doing it.

    "Partly from what they heard from politicians, from others, indeed some of the training that was delivered."
