The new Police and Crime Commissioner for Humberside Matthew Grove has put the former police authority building up for sale.

Mr Grove said he intended to relocate his office to "somewhere more modest" and to make it more accessible to people on both sides of the Humber.

The Grade II listed building, which is on Hull's High Street, is on the market for £425,000.

The offices will be occupied by the PCC and his staff until a buyer is found.

It was built in 1899 as a trading exchange for the corn, flour and seed crushing industries.

Later it became a private club and restaurant before being bought by Humberside Police Authority in 2001.

Mr Grove said: "I intend to use the capital receipt released from the sale of the building to create a Community Crime Prevention Fund, which will fund suitable capital projects brought forward by community groups that will be of positive benefit to them and our communities."

A spokesman for the Conservative PCC said they were looking for new offices "closer to the Humber Bridge".
