Panel of councillors hold chief to account
The politicians who will hold Leicestershire's elected police and crime commissioner to account have met for the first time.
The police and crime panel will hold regular question and answer sessions with Sir Clive Loader, who was elected last week.
It is made up of councillors from across the force area.
They include two former chairmen of Leicestershire Police Authority, Conservative county councillors Barrie Roper and Byron Rhodes.

Leicester's assistant mayor, Councillor Sarah Russell, who ran against Sir Clive in the election, is also on the panel.
The panel will meet Sir Clive on Thursday, December 20 at County Hall.
Sir Clive, a former air chief marshal, is now working with Chief Constable Simon Cole and other senior officers to draw up a three-year policing plan, which will come into effect from April.
A website has also been launched to explain the work of the commissioner and to provide updates.
Writing on the website, Sir Clive said: "I want to help the force to drive down crime, and to deliver the best possible service for each resident."
