Steve White elected new chairman of Police Federation

Steve White has been elected as the new chairman of the Police Federation, the organisation told ITV News.

He replaces Steve Williams, who with its general secretary Ian Rennie announced in April they would retire in late May after "a turbulent period" for the organisation.

Theresa May dropped a number of bombshell announcements when she addressed the Federation's conference in Bournemouth on Wednesday, including the removal of state funding this August.
