Sir Norman Bettison resigns over Hillsborough inquiry
Sir Norman Bettison has resigned as chief constable of West Yorkshire Police, saying an inquiry into his role after the Hillsborough tragedy was "a distraction" to the force.
At the time of the disaster he was a South Yorkshire Police inspector who attended the match as a spectator and later took part in an internal inquiry.
Sir Norman has denied claims he helped "concoct" a false version of events.
