SOUTH Yorkshire’s new Chief Constable has been named today as David Crompton, who will leave West Yorkshire Police to take up the top post.

He was one of three candidates in the running for the job, but was the only one left when the decision was made yesterday after the other two pulled out.

Mr Crompton was Deputy Chief Constable at West Yorkshire Police and succeeds Med Hughes, who retired from South Yorkshire’s top policing job in October after seven years at the helm.
