Greater Manchester no longer has a Police and Crime Commissioner. The Mayor of Greater Manchester has now taken responsibility for policing and crime.

Statement following the terrorist attack in Paris

Speaking following the terrorist attack on the offices of French satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo, Greater Manchester’s Police and Crime Commissioner Tony Lloyd said: 

“This is a shocking attack. Freedom of expression is a precious right, whether we agree or disagree with the views of those who exercise it. 

“To kill journalists, cartoonists and police officers is an act of barbarity – but it will not work. The fundamental belief in the right of people to express themselves in a democratic society will not be dented by terrorist attacks. 

“Our thoughts are with the victims of today’s attack.”
