JULIA MULLIGAN, the recently appointed Police and Crime Commissioner for North Yorkshire has failed to recruit a Chief Constable for the county. This her first major task since being appointed in the role may be showing the opening of cracks between her position and that of the police.

Making the announcement in a press release yesterday she said "My Assessment Panel and I undertook a comprehensive and exhaustive assessment process yesterday where a range of highly talented candidates displayed many strengths and aptitudes for the role.

"However, I am determined to ensure that the public gets the best possible person to lead North Yorkshire Police and hence I want to test the market again."

"I have therefore decided to re-advertise the post. Yesterday's candidates will be welcome to re-apply, if they so wish and I am still confident of making an appointment as soon as practically possible."

Temporary Chief Constable Tim Madgwick who was tipped for the job and amongst those believed to fit the description of highly talented, displaying many strengths and aptitudes for the role said:

"While I am clearly disappointed with the result, I am committed to leading the force through this interim period.

"We have a lot to achieve over the next couple of months, not least of which is a continued focus on performance and the successful consultation on the Police and Crime Plan."
