Cash for cops

Police Minister Vernon Coaker was facing further demands from hard-up cops asking for cash today.

Last week the Government came under attack from a Derbyshire MP for not giving his local force enough money.

The chief constable of the force said if the lack of funding continued the public would be put at risk.

Meanwhile Gedling MP Coaker had to tell Lincolnshire bobbies this morning that they too couldn't bank on getting any requested extra cash.

As the public finances tighten up the Notts MP should prepare to fight many more "cash for cops" battles.
