Unemployed 'normal guy' Neil Eyre joins Humberside police commissioner race
An unemployed man has announced he is standing to become the first Humberside police and crime commissioner.
Neil Eyre, who describes himself as a "normal guy", is standing for the £75,000 a year role as an independent.
Mr Eyre, 34, said: "I want to give people a non-party political, anti-establishment vote.
"People should have more of a choice, which is why I am standing.
"I am not tied to any political party, I am not a police officer, or lawyer, I am just a normal guy."
He will be going up against former deputy Prime Minister Lord Prescott, Conservative candidate Matthew Grove and former senior police officer Paul Davison, standing as an independent.
Mr Eyre said his chances of winning are slim, but said it is a job he wants to do.
"I would look after the individual and try to find solutions based on using common sense," he said.
"I am not just doing this because I am out of work. If I had a job, I would still be going for it."
