Nottinghamshire Police and Crime Commissioner candidate Mike Quigley standing down

The Conservative Party's Police and Crime Commissioner for Nottinghamshire, Mike Quigley, has announced he will be standing down ahead of the PCC elections on November 15.

His announcement follows confirmation that a minor offence committed more than four decades ago bars him from standing.

“It was an honour to be selected as the Conservative Party’s Nottinghamshire candidate for the Police and Crime Commissioner elections. It is with regret that I must stand down following confirmation that an offence committed more than 44 years ago for, which I was fined, bars me from the post.”

– Mike Quigley

Councillor Tony Roberts has been confirmed as the Party's new candidate.
