A former Humberside Police detective chief superintendent has been dismissed after being jailed for 12 months for stalking and intimidation.

Colin Andrews, 59, was found guilty by a jury at Manchester Crown Court of four offences.

He was working as a criminal justice unit manager when he was arrested after retiring from frontline policing.

The force said Andrews, from Brough, East Yorkshire, was dismissed after a misconduct hearing.

Andrews was convicted of harassment, aggravated stalking, common assault and witness intimidation.

He was cleared of three other charges, including a charge of rape.
