Row over Cumbria police chief intensifies

The row over the future of Cumbria's temporary chief constable is intensifying.

After being cleared of misconduct allegations, Stuart Hyde stressed again today that he's not resigning - or retiring.

Mr Hyde has been asked to go by the force's police commissioner Richard Rhodes - who's now facing criticism over his handling of the misconduct investigation.

South Lakeland MP Tim Farron said it has gone on for too long, and cost the taxpayer too much.

He argued it should be put into the hands of an independent panel.

MP: Stuart Hyde case "expensive and unfair"

Liberal Democrat MP Tim Farron has called for a speedy resolution to the case of Cumbria's temporary chief constable.

Police Commissioner Richard Rhodes called on Stuart Hyde to 'retire or resign' despite a police investigation clearing him of gross misconduct, misconduct and criminality.
