Nearly 300 full-time police officers across North Yorkshire could lose their jobs, an MP has warned. Vale of York MP Anne McIntosh says this will be the result of proposed mergers between police forces unless more government cash is forthcoming.

She was responding to a report by senior police officers that said plans to merge forces could not be achieved without more government funding. She says she fears 277 jobs could go - a move she calls 'daylight robbery'. Plans for mergers between four local forces are currently being considered by the Home Office. They have been resisted locally by all but one police force.
