Real crims getting away

PUBLISHED June 15, 2004

Police are failing to tackle serious crime - and concentrating on motoring offences instead, startling figures revealed yesterday.

But only ten forces were rated good at dealing with serious criminals, such as drug gangs -- and no force was rated excellent.
