The Chief Constable of Cambridgeshire Police, Simon Parr, has posted a video on YouTube all about the force's budget.

It's the first of four videos Cambridgeshire Police is releasing concentrating on four areas, also including collaboration with other forces, performance and the role of the public.

The force says many of the questions covered in the films address issues that have come from Cambridgeshire residents, including respones from the budget calculator.

Chief Constable Simon Parr said: "Firstly, I'd like to thank everyone who completed our online budget calculator.

The films give us an opportunity to reassure the public that we still have a lot of money to deliver policing.

We will meet this challenge by thinking differently and, despite the reduced budget, we will continue to proactively tackle crime."
