Scotland Yard could be sold as part of £500m savings plan


The Metropolitan Police is drawing up plans to sell New Scotland Yard - its home for almost half a century - in a bid to save £500m a year from its budget.

The Met also wants to shut almost half of its front counters at police stations in London.

Instead, people would be able to talk to police officers at supermarkets and community centres.
