Nick Clegg calls PCCs a 'failed experiment'

Police and crime commissioners (PCCs) are a "failed experiment", Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg has said.

His comments came as the candidates standing for the South Yorkshire PCC election were announced, with the Lib Dems declining to take part.

A Home Office spokesman said the PCCs replaced "invisible and ineffective police authorities".
