BRITAIN TODAY: Chief in U-Turn ; POLICE

A CONTROVERSIAL top policeman who announced his retirement last month has performed a U-turn.

Richard Brunstrom, Chief Constable of North Wales Police, promised he would retire next Christmas.

But in an interview the senior officer backtracked - claiming the person who announced his retirement was "mistaken". He said: "I'm not retiring."
