A new £95,000 IT scheme could improve 999 response times across mid Wales, Dyfed-Powys Police has said.

The force has been given the grant by the Home Office so information on call-outs can be shared between the police, fire and ambulance services.

A similar project was trialled by teams in south Wales in 2012 and data from 1,200 emergencies was shared.

If the scheme is successful it could be rolled out across the rest of the UK, Dyfed-Powys Police said.

"The public across Wales can expect better 999 responses thanks to this fresh use of technology," said the force's police and crime commissioner Christopher Salmon.

"It's right that we explore how public services can be improved through innovation."
