Boost for Harrogate anti-merger campaign

Harrogate campaigners battling to halt the scrapping of North Yorkshire Police and its merger into a Yorkshire superforce say the controversial plan should now be ditched, reports Harrogate Today.

It also cites a report that "North Yorkshire Chief Constable Della Cannings has expressed serious concerns about a regional merger. She had been a stalwart supporter of merger plans."

Two Conservative councillors have put forward objections amid claims of mounting opposition.

If the Chief Constable's change of stance is confirmed, it will be a significant victory in the anti-merger campaign.
