“However, I am determined to ensure the public gets the best possible person to lead North Yorkshire Police and hence I want to test the market again,” she said.

“I have therefore decided to re-advertise the post. Yesterday’s candidates will be welcome to re-apply, if they so wish, and I am still confident of making an appointment as soon as practically possible.”
