Independent candidate Stephen Bett, former chairman of the Norfolk Police Authority and ex-Conservative, defeated Tory Jamie Athill in the contest, after voters’ first and second preferences had been counted.

And Chief Constable Phil Gormley said: “I congratulate Stephen Bett on his success in the police and crime commissioner elections for Norfolk.

“I, along with the rest of my chief officer colleagues, look forward to working with him in the months ahead to continue to develop and deliver the excellent service provided by Norfolk Constabulary.”

  • Bett is not an independent, he is a political animal like all the others. More of the same in store for Norfolk.

  • What else do you expect? He is back to the old cosy relationship that subsisted before the election was held. No change - all is OK.

  • Hey ho. Normal service has been resumed. What a cosy relationship it is. Don`t expect anything to change. Bett will soon be after more money from us anytime soon to waste on more of his daft ideas.

  • "Norfolk’s highest ranking police officer has today offered his congratulations to the county’s new police and crime commissioner" Well I'll go to the bottom of our stairs. Gladhanding the chap who can fire him? Unthinkable. Mr Betts is on record as saying that there is no place for privatisation in the Norfolk Police service.The EDP has a public duty to perform here - starting by revealing the extent to which Norfolk police has already been inflitrated by the private sector (if at all). The likes of Mr Buckles and his G4S clowns should be shown the door pronto.
