Cumbria's outgoing Police and Crime Commissioner says he's proud of the way he's improved support for victims, during his three and a half years in office.

Richard Rhodes announced he would not stand for re-election in September 2015, in order to spend more time with his family.

He will be replaced by Peter McCall, who won last week's election with 34.43% of the first preference votes and then 25.98% of the second preference votes.

Mr Rhodes launches his final annual report today, looking back on his term, and he released the following statement.

It has been an honour and privilege to be the first Police and Crime Commissioner for Cumbria.
