Video: John Prescott campaigning in Grimsby town centre
Police commissioner candidate John Prescott is campaigning in Grimsby today.
The former deputy PM will be in the town centre throughout this afternoon.
Lord Prescott has pledged to stop cuts to officer numbers if he is elected as the first Humberside police and crime commissioner.
The Labour hopeful is the first candidate to unveil his manifesto ahead of next month's election.
Using the slogan "I'll cut crime – not cops' jobs", it says he will do all he can to protect the jobs of police officers and PCSOs.
Lord Prescott said: "I don't accept the extent of these cuts and I will be wanting to stop them if I am elected."
Humberside Police has cut more than 200 officers since 2010, with plans to lose a total of 440 by 2015.
Voting for the commissioner takes place on November 15, with the successful candidate starting work a week later.
Six other candidates have announced they intend to stand for the role.
Nominations close on Friday, when the final line-up of candidates will be confirmed.
