Chief Constable's resignation does not spell the end of Police Scotland difficulties

Scottish Liberal Democrat justice spokeswoman Alison McInnes has said that Sir Stephen House's resignation will not mean the end of challenges within the force.

“Since its creation Police Scotland has been at the heart of a series of scandals that have penetrated the lives of families across the country and simply removing the head will not cure the body.

“The scale of the challenges within the force facing the new Chief Constable is huge and whoever is appointed will need to learn from previous mistakes.

“Significant Scottish Government support is also needed and the Justice Secretary must be held to account for wider failings, which is why tomorrow I’ll be calling for him to appear before the Justice Committee in relation to recent police spying revelations.”
