In Tuesday's Gazette: Now Cops Face £36m Cuts
8:55am Tuesday 22nd October 2013 in News
ESSEX Police have announced a further £36 million in cuts.
The force unveiled plans to shed more than 1,000 staff by 2015 to save £42 million.
But with more Government curs looming, Chief Constable Stephen Kavanagh has revealed they need to slash their budget again.
Also in Tuesday's Gazette:
- A Tory councillor who sent an offensive tweet will face a conduct hearing, but police have dropped their inquiry.
- The family of a teenager who raised £100,000 for charity before he died of cancer have paid tribute to his inspirational attitude.
- Terrified drivers were forced to swerve out of the way of a runaway caravan.
- Traders say Colchester's new bus lanes are bad for business
All this and much more in today's Gazette. Remember, there's always much more in the newspaper than online.
