The Police Federation has declared “no confidence” in Priti Patel, the Home Secretary, after branding a pay freeze for officers as “the final straw.”

The federation, which represents 130,000 rank and file officers in England and Wales, will also withdraw its support for the pay review body.

It comes despite previous good relations between the federation and Ms Patel, who has worked hard to raise morale with the 20,000 uplift in officer numbers, a police covenant, increasing police powers, tougher sentences for assaults on officers and extra investment in equipment like tasers.

I Call True: You have to feel for the Police and what they have been through over the last year, and to once again see an effective pay cut is a shocker
