Police commissioners: Voters needed information - Alun Michael

Help

Former Home Office minister Alun Michael has been elected the first police and crime commissioner (PCC) for south Wales.

PCCs will be responsible for setting priorities for their police force, overseeing its budget and hiring the chief constable.

Mr Michael's election was announced at a count in Port Talbot ahead of three other candidates.

He told BBC Wales' James Williams he was not concerned about the credibility of the role despite the low turnout, but electors should have been given more information.
