A former Gloucestershire chief fire officer has been charged with fraud in connection with the sale of a Land Rover belonging to the fire service.

Stewart Edgar, 52, stepped down from his role after he was accused of buying a Land Rover Discovery worth up to £8,000 for £500 after the service put it up for auction.

Mr Edgar is due to appear at Cheltenham Magistrates' Court on 10 March.

Gloucestershire Police investigated the sale of the vehicle in April 2018.
