Three north Northumberland police stations are proposed for closure amid swingeing cuts to the Northumbria Police budget in the coming years.

Last week, it was announced that more than 400 jobs could go as the Force revealed it must save an additional £46million by March 2017, on top of £58million of savings already delivered since 2010.
