The Police Commissioner in Gibraltar, Ian McGrail, announced on Tuesday that he is retiring after 36 years in the police service.

In 2006, he became Gibraltar's youngest ever Chief Inspector and took up the post of Commissioner two years ago, in May 2018..

This was due to be a four-year post, and his decision to retire seems to have come as a surprise.

Richard Ullger, who is currently the Assistant Police Commissioner, will hold the post until a replacement is appointed.
