THE CURRENT Deputy Chief Constable of Humberside Police, Paul Anderson, has been announced as the preferred candidate to replace current Chief Constable Lee Freeman in August.

Mr Anderson (pictured), who has been with the Humberside Force since 2019 and has been a police officer for more than 30 years, will now attend a confirmation hearing with the Humberside Police and Crime Panel next month.

Crime Commissioner Jonathan Evison told Beverley FM: ““I am delighted that the selection procedure to identify my preferred candidate for Chief Constable of Humberside Police has concluded with Paul Anderson being unanimously approved by the selection panel.”

During Mr Freeman’s six years in charge Humberside Police has become one of the highest performing forces in the country. He leaves to become His Majesty’s Inspector of Constabulary and Fire & Rescue Services.

A NEW exhibition, Beverley by Kloskk, opens at Beverley Guildhall next Wednesday, featuring many of the stunning photos of Beverley taken by Kloskk Tyrer, who is well known to Facebook users as one of the town’s “visual storytellers”. 

Fiona Jenkinson, curator of the Guildhall, compiled the exhibition as a result of numerous requests from visitors to see more of Kloskk’s photos. Fiona said: “Despite the fact that Kloskk was not keen for her name to be used in the exhibition, her reputation will be a key element in drawing people to see it, as she is a regular contributor to Facebook and people love her views of the town. 

The Guildhall, in Register Square, is open every Wednesday and Friday from 10am to 4pm. Admission to the building is free. The exhibition will continue until October 27.
