Police Commissioners react to Chancellor's funding review

Funding for more police officers has been welcome by Nottinghamshire's police commissioner - but South Yorkshire's has raised questions.

Chancellor Sajid Javid has announced 2 thousand extra officers will be brought in by March.

Paddy Tipping says he's bidding to get 150 from that figure.

However, Alan Billings wants to know whether the cash to pay for the new recruits will be coming from the government, or passed on tax payers. He also believes it is not a long term plan.
