Public Badly Let Down By The Tories.

The number of police stations open to the public has almost halved in seven years, according to new figures.
Nearly 400 front counters have been shut across England and Wales, a Freedom of Information request by the Mail on Sunday found.
Figures from 31 out of 43 forces showed a fall from 901 open counters in 2010 to 510 as of March this year - a decrease of around 43%.
It comes amid political pressure on the Government over the reduction in the number of police officers and the rise in violent crime reported to forces.
A similar request by the Press Association last month found the Metropolitan Police sold off almost £1 billion in London property in the last five years, including 24 police stations. AOL News.
