Gwent Police commissioner forces chief constable out

Gwent's police and crime commissioner has admitted he ordered the force's chief constable, Carmel Napier, to retire or be forced out of office.

Ian Johnston claimed she was hostile to the appointment of police commissioners and that the relationship "was never going to work."

He spoke out after the South Wales Argus obtained leaked documents.

Mrs Napier has not yet responded, but but many MPs in the force area were damning in their criticism of the commissioner.

Jordan Davies reports.
