Govt to let minor crime be reported on the Net

What if your PC's been nicked?

Home Office Minister Charles Clarke has commissioned a Web site which will allow people to report minor crimes online.

The statement was made in a written Commons answer yesterday. It's all part of a vision to deliver police services electronically, he said.

"I believe that the public should be able to interact with their local force through a standard interface providing a wide range of services," he wrote. ®
