The Grampian police board, meeting today, is likely to express no confidence in Grampian's chief constable Ian Oliver, BBC Radio Four's Today programme heard this morning.

Jurgen Thomaneck, vice chairman of the police board, told the programme he did not expect the board to pursue dismissal or take disciplinary action against the chief constable, who retires in the summer.

But the critical report into the way Grampian police dealt with killing of nine year old Scott Simpson is 'a disastrous report as far as the force is concerned', Mr Thomaneck said. He said there was a management problem, which was the responsibility of the chief constable.
