Under-fire West Yorkshire chief constable Sir Norman Bettison has resigned.
He tendered his resignation ahead of a meeting which was scheduled to consider his role in the aftermath of the 1989 Hillsborough disaster, which he investigated for South Yorkshire Police, West Yorkshire Police Authority vice-chair Les Carter confirmed.
Sir Norman has been under growing pressure since the Hillsborough Independent Panel report was published and he is being investigated by the Independent Police Complaints Commission (IPCC).
