Changes have been unveiled at Kent Police in a bid to enhance local policing and help make savings of £20m.

Officers who respond to 999 calls will be managed by district commanders and new teams are being set up to provide a better connection with communities.

BBC South East Today's Louise Stewart spoke to Chief Constable Alan Pughsley, Ian Pointon, chairman of the Kent Police Federation, and Helen Godden, whose son was viscously attacked by a gang in Ramsgate.
