Welsh police chiefs have vowed to step up the fight over proposals to scrap force helicopters and replace them with a UK service.
Under plans for the National Police Air Service (NPAS) the Dyfed-Powys and the joint South Wales-Gwent helicopters would be axed, and all forces would share access to a pool of aircraft on a national basis. The proposals, which the UK Government has said it intends to force through, would also see a fixed wing aircraft serving Dyfed-Powys.
