Farron comments on Cumbria PCC's intervention in Stuart Hyde's case

August 27, 2013 2:59 PM

Tim with policeCommenting on the news that Stuart Hyde, Cumbria's temporary Chief Constable, is to be asked to resign or retire by the county's police commissioner, local MP Tim Farron has said:

"I want to hear concrete reassurances from the Commissioner that all the necessary legal procedures have been followed to the letter. I also want him to agree to show all the evidence to the independent scrutiny panel to allow them to make a judgement. The public do not know the full extent of the situation and they deserve to know what has happened.

"Whatever happens next it must be done swiftly for the sake of taxpayers in Cumbria and it must be done properly to ensure there are no court cases later that could cost further valuable public money."
