Full report: Stuart Hyde allowed to return to work

The temporary Chief Constable of Cumbria Police is being allowed to return to work.

Stuart Hyde was suspended last September over allegations of misconduct. He was cleared, but another investigation muddied the waters and he still wasn't allowed back.

Cumbria Police announced today that he would be coming back next week - and Mr Hyde issued a statement saying he had learned lessons from his ordeal, and was pleased to be able to return to work.

However, he also said he would retire by the end of the year.
