The police watchdog says it's raising a "red flag" against the state of policing following a damning new report.

The H-M-I-C says a shortage of detectives and investigators amounts to a "national crisis".

Leicestershire and Nottinghamshire's forces were rated as needed improvement.

Leicestershire's Deputy Chief Constable Roger Bannister says budget cuts of £38 million since 2009 has had a big impact on resources.
