Cambridgeshire's chief constable, Tom Lloyd, has resigned after newspaper claims that he made inappropriate sexual comments to a woman official.The sting's in the tail though:
A statement issued on Wednesday said Mr Lloyd, 53, was resigning to safeguard the reputation of the Cambridgeshire Constabulary.
According to the Daily Mail, the woman was allegedly "pestered" during a police conference in Birmingham.
Mr Lloyd was later called as a witness in the Bichard Inquiry into how police cleared the girls' killer, Ian Huntley, to work at a college despite a string of sex allegations.And there you have it. Let a shark loose in a paddling pool and the L3 will queue up to praise your epic courage in admitting that yes, you do suck at your job. Maka de naughty comments to a member of the female species and it's hari-kiri time.
Mr Lloyd told the inquiry that he took full responsibility for errors made and failings in vetting processes.
I feel safer already.
