Prices are rising again, meaning the cost of goods will outstrip wage increases.

Agree with Peter Stefanovic: As UK inflation rises to 2.5% it’s easy to see why our brave hero police, who run towards danger as we flee,say their 2% pay increase is an insult.

“In real terms its a 0.85% increase, a measly £2.50 a week for many hardworking officers up & down the country.”

Inflation rose to 2.5 per cent last month – the first increase in the rate in 2018.

The Office for National Statistics (ONS) reported that the Consumer Price Index (CPI) rose by 2.4 per cent year on year in June, with the increase in line with expectations from City of London analysts.
