CHIEF CONSTABLE CARRY-ON IN NORTH YORKSHIRE

North Yorkshire chief constable David Burke has announced he is postponing his retirement in order to clear his name. The Yorkshire Post (p1) reports that the county police authority is trying to get him out before his successor arrives to take up the£80,000-a-year post on February 2.

Burke decided to stay put eight days after North Yorkshire Police Authority ordered him to account for the way he had handled an internal inquiry into allegations of sexual harassment at Harrogate police station. He has stayed on, it is assumed, to face the disciplinary action that he could be facing. The authority's chair Angela Harris is quoted: 'He wants to explain his side and that's what we want him to do.'
