It's what has been being said for years finally come to fruition. The Government as usual have attempted to absolve themselves of any blame if you notice the quote from Brandon Lewis (The Minister for Policing and the Fire Service) - 

"This Government has protected police funding, through the 2015 Spending Review.

"There can be no excuse for any force that fails to deliver on its obligations - those identified as inadequate or requiring improvement must take HMIC's findings very seriously and I expect to see rapid improvements."

What he fails to mention was the crippling budget cuts which came before it leaving most forces simply incapable of recruiting year on year and losing more than they're gaining.
