SPA chief to step down to 'avoid being a distraction'

Andrew Flanagan has announced his intention to step down as chairman of the Scottish Police Authority to "draw a line" under his tenureship.

Mr Flanagan had been criticised by two Holyrood committees over governance and transparency at the SPA.

He will stay in post until a successor is appointed to help the SPA prepare to put its 10-year strategy into action.
