A new Deputy Chief Constable of North Yorkshire has been appointed.

Tim Madgwick has stepped into the role permanently after becoming acting DCC in June, this year.

He succeeded Adam Briggs, who retired in February after being disciplined for helping a relative get a job with the force during a recruitment exercise.

Mr Madgwick joined North Yorkshire Police in 1988, aged 30, following careers in education and private business.

Mr Madgwick was previously Assistant Chief Constable with the North Yorkshire force.

He said he was delighted and honoured to have been offered the post.

Mr Madgwick added: "This is my home force, having lived in the area since 1985, and nothing could give me greater pride or pleasure of continuing to deliver the best possible service for our communities."
