A superintendent with the Isle of Man police force is taking on the role of deputy chief constable.

Manx-born Gary Roberts joined the Isle of Man Constabulary in 1984 and has served as superintendent since 2005.

The 44-year-old will take up the new post from January under the new chief constable Mike Langdon.

Mr Langdon said Mr Roberts "played a key role" in modernising the force and had "unrivalled knowledge of policing on the Isle of Man".

In January 2005, Mr Roberts became superintendent with responsibility for all operational policing across the Island.

Mr Roberts said his new role was a "privilege and an honour".
