    The Labour/Liberal Democrat Progressive Alliance on Milton Keynes Council is asking when the police service in Milton Keynes will be sufficiently resourced.

    Milton Keynes is the largest town in the eastern region by both size and population, however police stations have been closed to the public or had their operating hours curtailed, and policing numbers have failed to recover from the Conservative government's headcount cuts.
