The chief constable of Lincolnshire Police says they're having to deal with making savings of more than £3m over the new financial year.

The force had feared they'd have to made nearly £7m but now the budget's been agreed after looking at the Government support for the next year. 
Chief Constable Bill Skelly has now outlined how they'll achieve that by this time next year.
100 jobs will go, with 40 fewer officers and 60 fewer other staff, PCSOs and civilian support staff.
A third of the savings will come from spending less with G4S, who provide other support including staffing custody suites, the force control room, HR, IT and the management of police vehicles.
