If the police tell me I don’t need a solicitor then surely it’s not necessary to ask for one to help me at the police station?

Individuals at the police station are frequently told by the police that they do not need a solicitor. The police are tasked with investigating any allegation impartially and fairly. If you are told by the police not to ask for a solicitor or the police try to persuade you not to request the services of a legally qualified lawyer, they are breaking a significant statutory safeguard under the Police and Criminal Evidence Act 1984, specifically put in place to prevent such unlawful conduct. You should always request the services of a lawyer whilst attending the police station, as it is free to all at point of request.
