Government sets out new ‘beating crime plan’

Sky News published this video item, entitled “Government sets out new ‘beating crime plan'” – below is their description.

The prime minister has defended plans to widen police use of stop and search powers, describing it as a “kind and loving” way to get dangerous weapons off the streets.

Speaking as the government set out its new Beating Crime Plan for England and Wales, Boris Johnson said stop and search was not a “strong-arm” tactic and plays an “important part in fighting crime”.
