Avon and Somerset Police and Crime Commissioner Logo

A spokesperson for the Office of the Police and Crime Commissioner for Avon and Somerset said:

"The High Court has confirmed that the Police and Crime Commissioner's decisions were lawful in every respect. The Judge rejected Mr Port's complaints in law, found that they were not even arguable and dismissed the case, costs were awarded against Mr Port.

"We are going ahead with the process to recruit a Chief Constable and we are holding our interviews this week to appoint the best candidate for Avon and Somerset.

"Colin Port has served the Constabulary and the communities of Avon and Somerset with distinction and we wish him every success in the future."
