Police Federation calls for swift appointment of Lincs top cop

Lincolnshire Police Federation is calling for a permanent chief constable to be appointed swiftly, to bring stability to the force.

It's after temporary chief constable Neil Rhodes was suspended by the Police and Crime Commissioner Alan Hardwick back in February over allegations of misconduct.

But yesterday, following a judicial review overturning that decision, an independent report has also now recommended the misconduct allegation be withdrawn. There are now four people currently in temporary positions at the top of the force.
