THE new deputy crime chief for Herts has been appointed.

Police and crime commissioner David Lloyd put forward former BBC manager David Gibson, who was ratified by the Police and Crime Panel last night (Thursday).

The number two will work full-time and earn up to £50,000.

Mr Gibson, who worked for the BBC for 27 years including at strategic managerial level, was selected following the resignation of previous deputy Rachel Frosh after she reposted a message on Twitter that compared modern socialists to Nazis.

Ms Frosh was earning £20,000 for a two-day role.
