BBC News - Nottinghamshire Police staff hold second strike

The BBC is covering UNISON Nottinghamshire police staff's second strike today. 120 police staff in Nottinghamshire have already lost their jobs. The force has identified 746 more jobs as at risk, as it attempts to save £46 million over 4 years.  The union is calling on the force to go to arbitration to resolve the dispute, as it believes the job cuts are not being made on a fair or equal basis.  http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/mobile/uk-england-nottinghamshire-14759551
