HULL: A Labour city councillor has branded the role of the new police and crime commissioner as a "waste of public money".
Councillor Rose Nicola, who represents Avenue ward, spoke out as scrutiny councillors heard details of how the new commissioner will replace the current Humberside Police Authority, which includes councillors from all four councils around the estuary.
She said: "I think the whole process is a waste of time and a waste of public money.
"I can't believe we are going to drag people out to vote in the middle of November to establish something that is taking the place of something that works perfectly well."
