Emma Boon of the Taxpayers’ Alliance said the event should have been funded privately.
‘It is incredible that huge sums of taxpayers’ money are being spent on this absurd opera at a time when the public finances are in such a mess,’ she said.
‘Details like the four helicopters will all make for a hugely expensive and over-the-top spectacle that many hard-pressed taxpayers will view as a self-indulgent and grotesque use of their money.’
Campaign director Emma Boon said: “Essex Police should have looked at what taxpayers were getting out of the counter service.
“It seems bizarre to not even measure how much this facility was being used before scrapping it.”
