A Lewis man has been appointed boss of the police union south of the border.

Calum Ian Macleod was elected chairman of the Police Federation of England and Wales - the staff body for all police constables, sergeants and inspectors.

Mr Macleod, who hails from Bayble, Point, takes up the role on 1 January.

He has been a police officer for over two decades.

His career began with Strathclyde Police in 1994, where he served until he transferred to South Wales in 2001.

The vast majority of his service has been in frontline operational duties.

His father, former Western Isles councillor Norman Macleod, was the last convener of the Northern Joint Police Board before the formation of Police Scotland.
