Police have 'given up' investigating some crimes says report
A police watchdog has found that some forces in England and Wales have "almost given up" investigating certain crimes such as thefts from vehicles, and criminal damage.
A report by Her Majesty's Inspectorate of Constabulary found there was a postcode lottery in the way different forces dealt with the same crimes and revealed some victims were being encouraged to investigate incidents themselves.
Daniel Sandford reports.
