Gwent PCC to face questions over police chief's exit

Ian Johnston became Gwent's first PCC last November.

Gwent's Police and Crime Commissioner will be asked to explain the controversial forced retirement of the force's Chief Constable later.

Ian Johnston will attend a meeting of the Gwent Police and Crime Panel.

Earlier this month he revealed he told former Chief Constable Carmel Napier to retire or be removed from her post.

Carmel Napier admitted the timing of her retirement was not of her choosing.
