Northamptonshire’s police and crime commissioner has quit his role as a councillor.

Following his election earlier this year to the commissioner’s job, Stephen Mold has decided to resign as a councillor for the Old Stratford ward on South Northamptonshire Council.

Mr Mold was elected as a Conservative councillor in May 2015.

A notice of vacancy for the ward seat was published by South Northamptonshire Council on Monday. If two local government electors request that the vacancy be filled by an election, a date will be fixed by the Returning Officer on which the election will be held.
