Police anger at Tom Winsor watchdog role

Help

The government "will not flinch" from naming Tom Winsor as chief inspector of constabulary for England and Wales, government sources have said.

They said ministers would not be "blown off course" by Police Federation opposition to the choice.

Lawyer Mr Winsor is the author of a controversial review on police pay, and is said to be the first non-policeman named to the post.
