Have your say

Lancashire’s new Police and Crime Commissioner will step down from his roles on borough and county councils, he has revealed.

Clive Grunshaw made the announcement to the Evening Post after coming under fire from Lancashire County Council leader Geoff Driver, who urged him to give up the allowances he earns as a county councillor and Wyre borough councillor, arguing his job as PCC was a “full-time role.”

Speaking at a meeting of Lancashire County Council yesterday, which Coun Grunshaw did not attend, Coun Driver also branded Coun Grunshaw’s appointments of a deputy and four assistants a “shambles”, saying all but one are previous members of the now defunct Lancashire Police Authority.
