Police chief fights Blunkett's order to quit

PUBLISHED June 24, 2004

The beleaguered chief constable of Humberside last night insisted he would continue to fight to keep his job even though he will be suspended from his post tomorrow.

David Westwood, who was criticised over his force's failure to keep tabs on the Soham killer Ian Huntley, said he had received messages of support and wanted to stay because it was his "duty" to drive through reforms.
