Sir Norman Bettison, Chief Constable of West Yorkshire, whose role after the Hillsborough disaster was criticised in a recent report, is to retire.
Sir Norman denied taking part in a cover-up of police failings and said he hoped his departure would allow the Independent Police Complaints Commission to examine his conduct thoroughly.
Mark Burns-Williamson, chairman of the West Yorkshire Police Authority (WYPA) told the Today programme's Jim Naughtie that "Sir Norman has clearly taken all circumstances into consideration and, in our view, made the right decision."
