Clash over police chief resignation demand

The Chief Constable of South Yorkshire Police will take legal action over the decision to ask him to resign.

David Crompton was suspended by Dr Alan Billings, the region's Police and Crime Commissioner, after the Hillsborough inquest verdicts in April because he thought the force had tried to justify the questioning of fans's conduct.

Mr Billings' decision has been branded by the Chief Inspector of Constabulary, Sir Tom Winsor, as "conspicuously unfair and disproportionate".

Sir Tom clashed with the police commissioner over the issue on the Today programme.
