This two-part documentary observes the increasingly cash-strapped police at work in Sheffield, where the influx of 700 Roma families in one neighbourhood is creating tensions; a night-time curfew on teenagers is due to end in a deprived and predominantly white British part of town; and officers fear they are about to become “the meat in the sandwich” during an English Defence League march.
