A NEW police station due to be opened at Nairn today is likely to close after 8pm every day as a result of budget cuts, union leaders have warned.

Senior Northern Constabulary officers and members of the Northern Joint Police Board are expected to be among the official delegation opening the £1million building this morning.

Later this month they will meet again to discuss plans to close 16 of the region’s police stations, limit the hours at 10 others – including Nairn – and axe about 50 civilian posts.
