  5. Chief warns of impact on force amid budget shortfalls

    A chief constable has warned budget cuts will have a "significant impact" on his force's services.

    James Vaughan said: "The budget for Dorset Police has already reduced by £25m since the introduction of the government’s austerity programme and, as a direct result, we have had to reduce our workforce by 500 officers and staff."

    He added he had a "growing concern" that demand for policing was "rising at an alarming rate" and said without investment crime would continue to rise.

  8. Number of refugee children trebles in Oxfordshire

    The number of refugee children being looked after in Oxfordshire has more than trebled over the past five years, figures show.

    From 20 children in 2014, social services are now caring for 70 lone asylum-seeking children.

    The Home Office says "the UK has a proud history of hosting, supporting and protecting vulnerable children affected by the migration crisis".

    Many children looked after in the county are deported when they reach 18.

    Oxfordshire County Council said government grants to care for the children were insufficient, but the Home Office said it was reviewing its funding.
