A major change to the running of emergency services in North Yorkshire is under way.

North Yorkshire Police and Crime Commissioner, Julia Mulligan, is now responsible for the fire service.

The powers came into force at midnight - and will replace the work of the North Yorkshire Fire Authority.

Julia Mulligan, currently Police and Crime Commissioner, becomes North Yorkshire’s Police, Fire and Crime Commissioner.

“We have incredibly hardworking firefighters and staff in North Yorkshire. I have met with many of them in recent weeks and will continue to do that now the transfer of governance has taken place.

“An independent report on the current situation within the Fire Service has been commissioned and this will publish its findings shortly. I will outline my plans and vision for the future of the organisation following this and ahead of the first meeting of the Police, Fire and Crime Panel in early December.”
