The chief constable of Avon and Somerset, Colin Port, is facing a hefty bill tonight after he lost a legal challenge against the force's newly-appointed Police and Crime Commissioner.
Colin Port argued that Sue Mountstevens' decision not to extend his contract when it expires at the end of this month wasn't lawful.
But a High Court judge rejected his claim to be allowed to stay in his job until the matter is sorted out. Bob Constantine reports from the High Court.
