Cumbria's suspended Temporary Chief Constable, Stuart Hyde, has given his reaction to the Commissioner's request that he should 'resign or retire':
"It should not come as a surprise that I do not agree with all of what has been said, and that I have a right to make the other side of this inquiry public.
"In any investigation or inquiry there will always be different perceptions of what occurred and the purpose should be to identify the truth. I believe that there is a different perspective than that offered by the PCC.
"Throughout i have maintained that I am not guilty of any serious wrongdoing and the extensive investigation conducted by an experienced Chief Constable supported by a team of specialist investigators has concluded that I was not in fact guilty of any misconduct at all.
"They have recommended that I receive Management Advice in a number of areas, the lowest level of resolution.
– Stuart Hyde
" I remain absolutely clear that I still wish to serve the people of Cumbria to the best of my ability. If I considered that the evidence found in the investigation justified the view that I was no longer fit to be a senior police officer I would have retired immediately.
"I do not believe that view is representative of the findings. I am determined to bring these matters to a conclusion and remain willing –as I have previously suggested to the PCC – to undertake mediation"
