we now join the BBC's news teams where you are.

:00:00.:00:04.

Good evening and welcome to BBC Look North. The headlines tonight.

:00:04.:00:09.

A report clears Lincolnshire's chief constable of misconduct —

:00:09.:00:11.

drawing a line under the row at the top of the force. The conclusions

:00:12.:00:23.

have let me in my words to say that the Chief Constable of Lincolnshire,

:00:23.:00:26.

Neil Rhodes, has been exonerated. Work versus university, teenagers

:00:26.:00:28.

look to the future after A—level and BTEC results.

:00:28.:00:31.

Fans see the Premier League trophy at the KC hours before Hull's

:00:31.:00:40.

return to top flight football. To think I am seeing the real version,

:00:40.:00:46.

it is just amazing. It is our team. And everyday like how we play.

:00:46.:00:49.

There's nothing else like it in the north, why there's so much pride in

:00:49.:00:55.

this city garden. We have got a spell of wet weather,

:00:55.:00:58.

some heavy rain on the cards overnight. Fresher day for tomorrow.

:00:58.:01:03.

I'll be back later with the fall forecast.

:01:03.:01:11.

The Chief Constable of Lincolnshire Police has spoken of his relief

:01:11.:01:15.

after he was cleared of misconduct, following a five month

:01:15.:01:21.

investigation. Neil Rhodes was suspended and later reinstated by

:01:21.:01:23.

the county's police and crime commissioner, Alan Hardwick, after

:01:23.:01:25.

he became embroiled in a dispute involving another force. A report

:01:25.:01:34.

out today found no evidence that Mr Rhodes had abused his position. In

:01:34.:01:39.

a moment, we'll hear from police commissioner Alan Hardwick. But

:01:39.:01:41.

first, our political editor Tim Iredale has this report.

:01:41.:01:49.

It is hard to imagine the two men responsible for keeping the streets

:01:49.:01:53.

of Lincolnshire safe have enjoyed happy working relationship over the

:01:53.:01:58.

past few months. Back in February, Neil Rhodes was suspended by the

:01:58.:02:01.

police and crime commissioner, Alan Hardwick. In March, Sir Peter Fahy,

:02:01.:02:06.

the Chief Constable of Greater Manchester Police, was asked to

:02:07.:02:10.

investigate. Later that month a judge quashed Mr Rose's suspension

:02:11.:02:15.

and he was reinstated as temporary chief constable put up the day Neil

:02:15.:02:19.

Rhodes was cleared of any accusation of misconduct. He has

:02:19.:02:23.

not been available for it to the bat gave this reaction on the

:02:23.:02:26.

internet. I have sought over the last six minutes to maintain a

:02:26.:02:31.

dignified silence, a safe in the knowledge I knew that there was

:02:31.:02:35.

never any substance in these spurious allegations. I do not

:02:35.:02:38.

intend to depart from that approach. I want simply to get on with my job

:02:38.:02:42.

with working with the commissioner to provide an effective and

:02:42.:02:47.

improving policing for Lincolnshire. This issue was never about police

:02:47.:02:52.

and immigration. It involved the advisory role Neil Rhodes had

:02:52.:02:55.

played in of case involving claims of racial discrimination brought by

:02:55.:02:59.

a solicitor who worked for West Yorkshire police. Sir Peter Fahy's

:02:59.:03:06.

report found that Mr Rhodes had done nothing wrong. As it was the

:03:06.:03:10.

dis —— wrong decision to suspend the chief constable. It was quite

:03:10.:03:16.

wrong and proper —— right that any allegation was investigated.

:03:16.:03:22.

Suspension is a big step, and I do not think the level of misconduct

:03:23.:03:26.

as alleged justified the suspension. The saga has attracted critics at

:03:26.:03:31.

Westminster. I think that Alan Hardwick and others will be to look

:03:31.:03:35.

carefully at this report so that everybody learned the lessons. A

:03:35.:03:37.

think the government needs to provide the support and advice that

:03:37.:03:43.

commissioners so desperately need. Both the chief constable and the

:03:43.:03:46.

commissioner say they want to draw a line under this matter, which has

:03:46.:03:50.

cast a black cloud over Lincolnshire's Thin Blue Line.

:03:50.:03:57.

Earlier, I spoke to the police and crime commissioner, Alan Hardwick,

:03:57.:04:00.

and asked him if the findings of today's report meant that he had

:04:00.:04:04.

been wrong to suspend and investigate Neil Rhodes. I received

:04:04.:04:09.

a very serious allegation, what was I supposed to do? I was not going

:04:09.:04:13.

to ignore allegations like that. The people of Lincolnshire would

:04:13.:04:18.

not expect their PCC to ignore an allegation. That would be the thin

:04:18.:04:23.

end of the wedge, what would they suspect the of covering up next?

:04:23.:04:31.

Sir Peter interviewed Mr Rhodes for three hours for this investigated,

:04:31.:04:33.

but you say you still remain troubled by the nature of the

:04:33.:04:35.

investigation and the allegation. Are you but letting the matter

:04:35.:04:40.

rest? As fire as I'm concerned, this draws a line under the whole

:04:40.:04:44.

episode. To answer your question more directly, in an ideal world it

:04:44.:04:48.

would have been good if Sir Peter's inquiry could have come down on one

:04:48.:04:53.

side or another. It did not, and that is not really a surprise

:04:53.:04:57.

because this all revolved around a private conversation between two

:04:57.:05:01.

very, very highly placed individuals in the High it world of

:05:01.:05:04.

policing. There was no independent witness. The conclusions have led

:05:04.:05:09.

me, in my words, this is my words, to say that the Chief Constable of

:05:09.:05:13.

Lincolnshire Neil Rhodes has been exonerated. Do you regret doing

:05:13.:05:19.

what you have done? How much has a cost Tech —— taxpayers for example?

:05:19.:05:26.

My legal bill is £37,500. I do not know whether you expect me to dodge

:05:26.:05:30.

that question, I have no intention of doing that. Any other bills

:05:30.:05:35.

associated with this will be published by my website. Money

:05:35.:05:38.

which could have been spent on policing which has gone down the

:05:38.:05:43.

tubes of a right carry on? No, it is not a right carrying, policing

:05:43.:05:47.

has not gone down the tubes, the money will be found from the Budget

:05:47.:05:50.

in my own department where I have already saved a I have saved

:05:50.:05:56.

£200,000 per year. You can prioritise money, but what price

:05:57.:06:04.

integrity and what price democracy? Mr Rhodes has indicated that he

:06:04.:06:09.

intends to apply for the role of chief constable permanently. Do you

:06:09.:06:14.

wanted to be Chief Constable? I AM delighted you race that, Peter. I

:06:14.:06:19.

am also delighted that Neil Rhodes has told me that he will apply for

:06:19.:06:25.

the permanent role, when I advertise. The applications and

:06:25.:06:30.

every part of the process will be supervised by the New College of

:06:30.:06:34.

policing. I welcome Mr Rhodes's application. Would he make a good

:06:34.:06:40.

chief constable for you? Neil Rhodes a knowledge of ligature, of

:06:40.:06:51.

accessing, hit Sanderling good —— it stands him in good stead. Will

:06:51.:06:57.

he make a good Chief Constable? He is the acting chief constable, and

:06:57.:07:01.

he has a 27 year unblemished police career, what more can I say. They

:07:01.:07:09.

queue for your time. My pleasure. Was Alan Hardwick right to

:07:09.:07:13.

investigate, even though the cost to the tax payers as we just herds

:07:13.:07:18.

has been almost £40,000? If you have a view on this, we will have

:07:18.:07:22.

some before we finish. This is how you get in touch.

:07:22.:07:37.

We look forward on hearing your thoughts on this one.

:07:37.:07:45.

In a moment. A last chance to have a say on the biggest local road

:07:45.:07:51.

investment for three decades. More teenagers are choosing to

:07:51.:07:53.

study job—specific university courses or take up apprenticeships.

:07:53.:07:58.

Head teachers say it's a trend which means many students will be

:07:58.:08:03.

better equipped for the jobs market. The news comes on the day school—

:08:03.:08:06.

leavers across East Yorkshire and Lincolnshire picked up their A

:08:06.:08:09.

level or BTEC results. Sarah Corker was with some of them.

:08:09.:08:14.

After two years of hard work, relief for pupils at John Leggott

:08:14.:08:21.

college in Scunthorpe. I didn't sleep very much, I kept waking up

:08:21.:08:25.

in the night. I was nervous. But it paid off. My heart was pounding

:08:25.:08:30.

from around 5am, refreshing the page, trying to log on. Then I got

:08:30.:08:37.

them and it was just, oh my gosh! I got three A*s and add A! It's been

:08:37.:08:45.

a record year for the college. We have gone from a low point three or

:08:45.:08:48.

four years go to the best ever achievement rates, the best ever

:08:49.:08:52.

high—grade rate said we have ever had. We are very proud. It's a

:08:52.:08:57.

story repeated across our area. In Mablethorpe, teenagers chose to do

:08:57.:09:00.

BTECs instead of A levels, a qualification geared towards

:09:00.:09:08.

employment. What are the advantages of BTEC over A—level? They offer

:09:08.:09:13.

more work—related learning, and students perceive that it is a more

:09:13.:09:17.

direct route to into employment. And it gives them an opportunity to

:09:17.:09:23.

express succeed where they might not be so successful if they are

:09:23.:09:27.

not very good at examinations. Like Rachel most here have a clear

:09:27.:09:34.

career path. I wanted to be an air hostess can I just needed some work

:09:34.:09:37.

experience. I want to do an apprenticeship at the school. I

:09:37.:09:41.

have now got experience, so it would hold me up greatly. I got a

:09:41.:09:46.

distinction, Merit, married, in sport or exercise science, and I am

:09:46.:09:51.

going to university to do sport and excitation —— education. For those

:09:51.:09:54.

who didn't get the grades, they were probably on clearing hotlines

:09:54.:09:57.

like this at the University of Hull. The message is, do not panic, we

:09:57.:10:01.

make office where we can but we encourage people to visit. They are

:10:01.:10:04.

making a decision which will affect them for three or four year. These

:10:04.:10:08.

school leavers are hoping their job focused approach to learning will

:10:08.:10:11.

give them the edge when looking for work. Many young people have no

:10:11.:10:18.

coast —— choice than to leave the area if they are going to perceive

:10:18.:10:32.

their careers. If you were getting results this morning, I hope you

:10:32.:10:35.

got the results you were hoping for. A new school will be built in

:10:35.:10:38.

Lincoln which will teach students vocational skills. A former art

:10:38.:10:41.

college will be expanded and turned into a University Technical College.

:10:41.:10:44.

It's a joint project between Siemens, the University of Lincoln

:10:44.:10:46.

and Lincoln College to improve engineering and science skills in

:10:46.:10:52.

the county. Consultation on plans to improve

:10:52.:10:55.

one of the regions busiest roads ends today. People who use the A63

:10:55.:11:00.

Castle Street in Hull have until midnight to comment on a proposed

:11:00.:11:03.

£190 million scheme which could begin as early as next year. Amanda

:11:03.:11:13.

White reports. Even at quiet times, the traffic on

:11:13.:11:16.

Hull's A63 Castle Street just keeps on coming. Cars, lorries and

:11:16.:11:26.

pedestrians trying to cross for busy lanes of traffic. It's hoped

:11:26.:11:29.

long awaited improvements will ease congestion, improve safety, and

:11:29.:11:32.

once again link the city with its waterfront. We are looking forward

:11:32.:11:38.

to successful completion of the scheme. It could make a huge

:11:38.:11:41.

difference to us in terms of journey times, fuel efficiency, and

:11:41.:11:48.

just the general level of service that we can give to our customers.

:11:48.:11:51.

If realised there'll be a new footbridge on the eastbound

:11:51.:11:53.

approach to Mytongate which would itself be transformed by lowering

:11:53.:11:56.

the road seven metres, allowing cross city traffic to flow straight

:11:56.:12:03.

through. At the other end there's be another footbridge linking the

:12:03.:12:04.

fruit market area. area by between the marina and

:12:05.:12:11.

Prince's Quay shopping centre that seems to be the most contentious. A

:12:11.:12:19.

third footbridge is planned here. But that's not enough for some

:12:19.:12:26.

campaigners. What we would like to see is a land bridge, something may

:12:26.:12:31.

be 25 metres wide, connecting Prince's Quay copping centre ——

:12:31.:12:36.

shopping centre to the Riverside. We think that would have the

:12:36.:12:39.

benefit of reuniting the town centre, at the moment, it is

:12:39.:12:44.

divided. To get your opinions on the scheme considered by the

:12:44.:12:47.

Highways Agency, you need to complete an online survey before

:12:47.:12:59.

midnight. Flaky for watching. Still ahead. The council gardeners' pride

:12:59.:13:10.

in bringing colour to their city centre plot.

:13:10.:13:18.

That made me jump! Tonight's photograph was taken of the yachts

:13:18.:13:27.

in Bridlington. Thank you very much for that. Good evening, Keighley.

:13:27.:13:35.

Rachel says, Peter, my husband has given up eggheads to watch Keeley

:13:35.:13:40.

every night, could you send a picture? A promotion for you. Or a

:13:40.:13:47.

retirement job! No one is laughing... Yes, they are! We are

:13:47.:13:54.

co—ordinated, as well. The wardrobe department had a word.

:13:54.:13:59.

It has been a mild, she midday today, it will feel fresher, less

:13:59.:14:05.

humid my bed feeling warm in the sunny spells. —— less humid, but

:14:05.:14:15.

feeling warm. We have arranged front coming on Saturday, later on.

:14:15.:14:20.

We have had some sunshine today, but we have also had a few showers.

:14:21.:14:25.

One or two quite sharpens developing across Lincolnshire.

:14:25.:14:29.

They will ease away. It will be replaced by heavy and persistent

:14:29.:14:34.

rain spreading in from the West. It will be heaviest in the morning.

:14:34.:14:41.

The rain will turn more patch and laity —— lighter in Nature later

:14:41.:14:44.

during the night. Tomorrow morning, we start off with

:14:44.:14:55.

a lot of cloud, patchy rain and drizzle about. That will ease

:14:55.:14:59.

southwards and it will brighten up from the north during the day. A

:14:59.:15:05.

less breezy day that today. And also a slightly fresher day. It

:15:05.:15:08.

will feel less humid, but temperatures will still get into

:15:08.:15:11.

the low twenties. In the sunshine, feeling very pleasant. Looking

:15:11.:15:20.

further ahead, it looks as if it will be a breezy weekend. The

:15:20.:15:24.

better of the two days is Sunday, it will be the drier day. On

:15:24.:15:28.

Saturday, early sunshine but a few showers around, then they will

:15:28.:15:31.

merge into longer spells of rain later in the day on Saturday. On

:15:31.:15:36.

Sunday and Monday, fewer showers, a good deal of emphasis on dry

:15:36.:15:40.

weather. The weather settles down as we go through next week.

:15:40.:15:45.

Amazing how someone who looks so sweet can be so acidic! That is a

:15:45.:15:48.

bit harsh! It was meant! A chip shop in Lincoln has become

:15:48.:15:57.

one of only twenty in the country to be certified by the Marine

:15:57.:16:00.

Stewardship Council. All their haddock is sourced from sustainable

:16:00.:16:04.

fisheries. It means customers can be sure they're not damaging

:16:04.:16:09.

dwindling fish stocks. Jake Zuckerman reports.

:16:09.:16:13.

At the Burton Road chippy, they're used to winning awards for the

:16:13.:16:17.

quality of their food. But the latest accolade recognises their

:16:17.:16:21.

environmental credentials. This haddock is Marine Stewardship

:16:21.:16:25.

Council certified. That means it comes from a sustainable source

:16:25.:16:32.

where it's not being overfished. It is our way of saying, we like to

:16:32.:16:36.

look after our oceans. We care about our oceans, the stocks of our

:16:36.:16:41.

fish. It means a lot to ask to be part of it. The fish is caught in

:16:41.:16:44.

Scotland on boats like these, but despite the journey to Lincoln,

:16:44.:16:47.

owners say its carbon footprint compares favourably with other

:16:47.:16:54.

sources. Our aim, to be honest, is to support the British trawlermen.

:16:54.:16:59.

At the end of the day, if it is not British, it means it has come from

:16:59.:17:04.

somewhere else, I E Norway or Iceland. So the carbon footprint is

:17:04.:17:07.

even more. For many customers it's a new concept, and one that's

:17:07.:17:12.

proving popular. It is important, because as with a lot of things

:17:12.:17:17.

these days, we are trying to make sure that we know where our food

:17:17.:17:20.

comes from. Although it did not bring us here today, it would

:17:20.:17:25.

sudden encourage me to come again. More places should go around the

:17:25.:17:29.

country. At the moment, only the haddock here is MSC certified, but

:17:29.:17:32.

the owners are hoping to add more species to that list. It is

:17:32.:17:36.

becoming more of an important issue with consumers, a lot more media

:17:36.:17:40.

coverage around that so we really need pioneers and advocates like

:17:40.:17:46.

them to play a champion role, so it is great to have them on board. Was

:17:46.:17:50.

customers may arrive here lowing —— knowing little or nothing about the

:17:50.:17:54.

issue of sustainability, such is the owners' enthusiasm for the

:17:55.:17:58.

subject, they are likely to leave convinced of its importance.

:17:58.:18:02.

Hull City fans groups are calling on the club's owners not to change

:18:02.:18:08.

its name to Hull City Tigers. Supporters groups have today signed

:18:08.:18:10.

a joint statement criticising the decision. They say the re—branding

:18:10.:18:15.

is being drip—fed through the club and says such a 'radical change

:18:15.:18:18.

should not be made without first consulting the supporters.

:18:18.:18:24.

And if you want to see my interview with Hull City's owner Assem Allam

:18:25.:18:27.

from last night's programme, an extended version is now on the Hull

:18:27.:18:42.

City page of the BBC Sport website. Record Hull City signing Tom

:18:42.:18:45.

Huddlestone says there is no reason at all why Hull City should not be

:18:45.:18:51.

in the Premier League next season. The player, who has four England

:18:51.:18:54.

caps, made the switch from Tottenham to the Tigers yesterday

:18:54.:18:55.

for £5.2 million. on the day when the Premier League

:18:55.:19:03.

trophy was in the city and our sports reporter Simon Clark went

:19:04.:19:10.

along to see it. This is what the Premier League is

:19:10.:19:15.

all about. The trophy itself was in Hull, being shown at the youngsters

:19:15.:19:19.

and backroom staff at Hull City. Inspirational? You bet. Yeah, I am

:19:19.:19:29.

really excited to see us play again like, against last sitting at

:19:29.:19:32.

Manchester City, Arsenal and Chelsea. Amazing. It is exciting, I

:19:32.:19:38.

have never seen it before. It is our team. And I really like how I

:19:38.:19:43.

play. It is here because Barclays wanted to celebrate people coming

:19:43.:19:46.

up to the league, so the three promoted clubs have got a tricolour

:19:46.:19:50.

to show what we have got part of. It is also to say, if you are

:19:50.:19:54.

really good, you might win this one day. The first man to lift it was

:19:54.:20:01.

Steve Bruce, then the Manchester United campaign captain. Towards

:20:01.:20:06.

the end of the campaign, Sir Alex said, go up and of the trophy

:20:06.:20:11.

together. We were Billy —— delighted to be taking part in the

:20:11.:20:14.

biggest and best league of the world. You just have to look around

:20:14.:20:18.

the room to see what it brings compared to last year. Let's go and

:20:18.:20:21.

enjoy it, we could not have wished for more difficult start, but that

:20:21.:20:26.

is the Premier League. Steve Bruce had cooler to lift the trophy again

:20:26.:20:30.

but first needs to consolidate Hull City's position. So he has brought

:20:30.:20:35.

in highly rated Tottenham midfielder Tom Huddleston and Jake

:20:35.:20:46.

Livermore. Some squads come up I do not see why we cannot look to have

:20:46.:20:51.

that, but we need to remain Premier League. It is a great opportunity

:20:51.:20:56.

and a call for me to come here, and the idea of playing every week,

:20:56.:21:01.

Sharon Laws I can do. The pitch looks picture—perfect, although we

:21:01.:21:04.

will have to wait a week until they are back here to play against

:21:04.:21:07.

Norwich City. This week, it is about Chelsea. Jose Mourinho, and

:21:07.:21:11.

with these players that City have now signed, they are being talked

:21:11.:21:16.

about again. That is what the Premier League is all about. Hull

:21:16.:21:20.

City are back on the footballing map.

:21:20.:21:25.

It's considered a jewel in Hull's crown, with nothing like it in the

:21:25.:21:28.

north of England. The colourful displays around the fountain in

:21:29.:21:31.

Queen Gardens draw shoppers and office workers every day. In the

:21:31.:21:37.

latest in our great garden series, Jo Makel's been investigating how

:21:37.:21:40.

the flowers are kept looking so good, and why big changes are

:21:40.:21:42.

planned. It is perhaps the most public front

:21:42.:22:03.

garden you could have. And one of the most vibrant scenes in Hull. On

:22:03.:22:11.

sunny days, it bustles next to the bus lanes. But it also brings

:22:11.:22:22.

colour and calm to the city centre. Creating this tulle all start on

:22:22.:22:32.

industrial estate. These are for spring and winter of 2014. Again,

:22:32.:22:40.

we have got the eternal area which chart permanently planted. We have

:22:40.:22:46.

got a new type of pansy here. It is one of the only areas within the

:22:46.:22:50.

country that has an open space in the middle of the city. Outside of

:22:50.:22:55.

London, obviously. There is nothing like it anywhere in the North of

:22:55.:23:00.

England. To see people use the gardens, to see them, admire them,

:23:00.:23:05.

it really is a privilege. We are stuck with circles, we have then

:23:05.:23:08.

designed within the circles. So we can have other circles going in, we

:23:08.:23:14.

can look at them, in segments, and the varieties of shapes, and we can

:23:14.:23:19.

look at the plots themselves to give us the best design possible.

:23:19.:23:26.

The designs are changed pricier so the Carl Hester last —— to the

:23:26.:23:32.

designs have the last, and the plants have to be hardy against the

:23:32.:23:37.

weather. Simon is already thinking about the design to next year. With

:23:37.:23:42.

him is Deborah, and if you have ever wondered he keeps this area

:23:42.:23:48.

looking tip—top, it is down to Deborah and her colleague. We will

:23:48.:23:52.

do one of the sections every morning. We have got to watch the

:23:52.:23:55.

diseases and watering. And the weeds, especially weeds. This is

:23:55.:24:00.

the main thing in the city centre, and if you are not proud of what

:24:00.:24:03.

you do, there is no point in doing it. The fountain area is only half

:24:03.:24:09.

of it. Queen's Gardens includes a park, created in 1930, when the

:24:10.:24:15.

dockers filled in. It had a post for the revamp in the Fifties, but

:24:15.:24:19.

since then, then it should trees are not the only things to have

:24:19.:24:24.

changed. For 30,000 people come to work in the centre of whole every

:24:24.:24:28.

day, biscuits and somewhere to go it is present, open, lots of

:24:28.:24:30.

greenery. We would really want to put in a

:24:30.:24:42.

Heritage Lottery funded thing, we use it for major events, and it was

:24:42.:24:46.

not designed for it. We have used it more and more for the last

:24:46.:24:49.

couple of decades because it is the perfect location. This part of the

:24:49.:24:53.

gardens has not always had the best of reputations. A place where you

:24:53.:24:57.

might find people worse for drink. But the council will bid for four

:24:57.:25:03.

or £5 million to create a more open, light and User Friendly Speight. ——

:25:03.:25:09.

space. Designing a garden like this is not just about the plants, but

:25:09.:25:14.

the people who use it as well. They do a fantastic job, always

:25:14.:25:18.

looks magnificent even in the winter. Let's have a look at the

:25:18.:25:22.

headlines. More violence in Egypt, there is a

:25:22.:25:25.

huge jump in the official death toll after yesterday's clashes

:25:25.:25:29.

between security forces and Islamist protesters.

:25:29.:25:33.

And a report clears a Lincolnshire's Chief Constable of

:25:33.:25:36.

misconduct, drawing a line under several months of uncertainty in

:25:36.:25:39.

the force. Early rain is Clearing, varied

:25:39.:25:43.

amounts of cloud, sunny spells, feeling fresher tomorrow but

:25:43.:25:46.

temperatures still good at 23 degrees Celsius.

:25:46.:25:53.

Let's go back to the top story, our political editor is a Thai police

headquarters. What lessons can be learnt —— is outside the police

:25:57.:26:01.

headquarters. What lessons can be learned from this process? We have

:26:01.:26:05.

learnt what willpower these police and Crown Commissioners have. ——

:26:05.:26:10.

what real power. The government always said a big part of their job

:26:10.:26:15.

would be to hire and fire chief constables and Alan Hardwick wasted

:26:15.:26:19.

in no time in flexing his muscles. I think some would ask about the

:26:19.:26:25.

accountability in this case. The Home Affairs Select Committee was

:26:25.:26:27.

critical of the lack of scrutiny from the police and crime at panel

:26:27.:26:31.

in Lincolnshire. This is the body set up to oversee the work of the

:26:31.:26:37.

PCC. Some will come away from this saga asking, who polices the police

:26:37.:26:42.

commissioner? A big response on this story. Brian on the text says,

:26:42.:26:47.

now the Chief Constable Neil Rhodes b exonerated, will Alan Hardwick

:26:47.:26:53.

resigned for wasting public money on a spurious action? Another one

:26:53.:27:00.

says, this was not right, just PR and inexperience at dealing with

:27:00.:27:06.

top—level decisions, I feel for the chief constable. This one says, of

:27:06.:27:09.

course he was right to investigate, if he did not and later the chief

:27:09.:27:13.

constable would have been found guilty with Alan Hardwick having a

:27:13.:27:16.

tip—off, he would have been criticised and accused of

:27:16.:27:19.

protecting him. John says, this just proves that having a

:27:19.:27:22.

commissioner is a waste of time and money. Is he now going to resign

:27:22.:27:25.

after the embarrassment he has brought to the local police force?

:27:25.:27:30.

This one is anonymous, the police and crime commissioner was right to

:27:30.:27:34.

investigate. If he had ignored, it would have been called a cover—up.

:27:34.:27:39.

A good response of a story. 34 watching, have a nice evening. See

:27:39.:27:42.

you tomorrow.
