Vauxhall has signed a new two-year, multi-million pound fleet deal that will see it supplying 2000 vehicles to police forces.

The deal includes 1200 Astra models, as well as Corsas, Insignias and Vivaro vans. The manufacturer claimed it is the largest supplier of low and intermediate performance vehicles to the police, with a 60% share of the market.

Procurement for the transaction was led by West Midlands Police with vehicles set to join 28 forces across the UK.

In addition, six fire and rescue services are also included in the agreement, which sees vehicles heading to East and West Sussex, Northamptonshire, Shropshire, Surrey and Staffordshire.

"A vehicle purchasing collaboration between police forces and partners on this scale has never been seen before and I am delighted to say that it has been a huge success in terms of the savings made and how well the organisations have worked together," said David Wilkin, West Midlands police's director of resources.
