Deputy Police Commissioner resigns over Tweet

Hertfordshire Deputy Police & Crime Commissioner Dr Rachel Frosh has resigned

Hertfordshire's new Deputy Police and Crime Commissioner Dr Rachel Frosh has resigned just a few months into the job. It comes after she re-tweeted a comment on Twitter which linked to a quote from Adolf Hitler.

Crime Commissioner David Lloyd confirmed he had accepted the resignation from the £20,000 a year, two-day a week role. He said: "I am sad to have to accept Rachel's resignation. She has taken the honourable course of action by making this decision and I will miss her valuable contribution."

Dr Frosh said: "I appreciate that David must have constructive relationships with all political parties. I recognise that I am not able to fully comment on some political issues whilst remaining as Deputy Police and Crime Commissioner."
