George Hamilton wants 'safer, better' Northern Irleand

George Hamilton has said he wants to be the chief constable to make Northern Ireland "a safer, better, more confident place".

On Thursday, Mr Hamilton was appointed as the head of the Police Service of Northern Ireland.

At a press conference on Friday, Mr Hamilton said he was "honoured and humbled" to have been selected.

He will take over the job when the current chief constable Matt Baggott steps down over the summer.

BBC News NI's Home Affairs Correspondent Vincent Kearney reports.
