Residents are being asked to give their views on how Cheshire Police can save money, as the force to tries to save millions of pounds from its budget.

Cheshire Police Authority said in December it would have to find savings of £24m.

Police officers and members of the authority are holding Police Question Time events in the county in January.

They will also be seeking views on the chief constable's objectives and the government's plans for policing.

People can attend the meetings or send questions in on pre-paid postcards.

The meetings are being held in Chester, Runcorn, Warrington, Macclesfield, Crewe and Northwich.

The police authority has previously warned the cuts will mean a reduction in police officers.
