West Midlands PCC Bob Jones dies aged 59

Colleagues of Bob Jones, the West Midlands Police and Crime Commissioner who died at the age of 59, have described him as "a great public servant" and "a man of huge integrity".

Mr Jones, from Wolverhampton, was elected to the role as a Labour candidate in November 2012.

He caused controversy when he called for PCCs to be scrapped, but also lent his support to several campaigns while occupying the role.

BBC Midlands Today's Peter Wilson reports.
