The temporary chief constable of Cumbria has made a statement after being suspended following a number of claims of serious misconduct.
Stuart Hyde was relieved of his duties following a meeting of Cumbria Police Authority on Thursday.
"I have been very proud to serve the people of Cumbria as chief constable and wish to continue in that role. I was devastated when I was told last night about the allegations. I will await the full details and I will co-operate fully with any investigation. This has had a profound effect on me and my family and I want to clear my name as soon as possible."
