Norfolk police commissioner 'could revive bid for fire service control'
Controversial proposals to place control of the fire service in the hands of the police and crime commissioner could be revived, it has been revealed.
Last November, Norfolk PCC Lorne Green opted not to put a case forward to the government arguing his office should run the fire service, rather than Norfolk County Council.
His office spent £100,000 on exploring the possibility, but after criticism from the county council and the Fire Brigades Union – among others – Mr Green opted not to pursue it any further.
