Sir Norman Bettison has stepped down as head of West Yorkshire Police following criticism of his involvement in the aftermath of the Hillsborough disaster.
His departure comes ahead of a planned meeting this afternoon which was to consider his role in the aftermath of the tragedy.
He was referred to the IPCC regarding allegations that he provided misleading information while working as a Chief Inspector in South Yorkshire. He also took part in a subsequent internal inquiry into the police's handling of the disaster, in which 96 Liverpool fans died.
