Cumbria police chief defends merger

The Chief Constable of Cumbria has defended plans to merge the county’s police force with Lancashire Police, claiming an amalgamation was inevitable, says Lakeland Radio.

Michael Baxter said a merger would have happened if the Government had not proposed to cut the number of forces. He said it would happen due to the fact that there would not be enough cash to fight serious crime and for neighbourhood policing.
