SECRET plans to set up a single European police force are being drawn up in Brussels.
The move – which could see foreign police officers patrolling our streets – sparked a furious reaction in Britain last night.
Details of the plan are buried in documents detailing the European Commission’s budget proposals.
They show the Commission is to fund a study on “the feasibility of and obstacles to the creation of a federal police force for the EU”.
The European Gendarmerie will be made up of military police from five EU countries and will be available for peacekeeping missions worldwide. The non-permanent force will have 800 police officers available to deploy within 30 days' notice and a pool of 2,300 reinforcements on standby.
