Crime down by 3% in Lincolnshire, say county's PCC

Crime is down by 3% across Lincolnshire according to the county's police and crime commissioner Alan Hardwick.

But MPs have suggested that police crime figures should be taken with a pinch of salt amid claims that some forces are manipulating the numbers to try and hit targets.

Mr Hardwick said the Lincolnshire force does not have targets and the figures are accurate.
