The Police Minister has apologised after admitting the Government made errors in its controversial reform of the police funding formula.

Mike Penning said the Government “regrets” the mistake and apologised to MPs and the 43 police forces in England and Wales.

He admitted the proposed changes were “never indicative” of police budgets under the formula and the changes for 2016/17 will now be delayed.
