The outgoing chief constable of Avon and Somerset police has lost his legal action against his newly elected police and crime commissioner.
Colin Port had been seeking a six-month notice period and an injunction blocking the interview process for his successor. A High Court judge today refused permission for a judicial review.
Sue Mountstevens was elected to the police and crime commissioner post in Avon and Somerset in November and on the day she was officially sworn in, Mr Port quit after eight years in the role. He said he was asked to reapply for his own job, which he had "no intention" of doing.
