Police and Crime Commissioner for Cleveland, Barry Coppinger, has paid tribute to Durham PCC Ron Hogg, who has passed away today.
He said: “I’m devastated to hear of the passing of my good friend and colleague Ron Hogg.
“Ron has been a professional and political colleague for many years and made an enormous contribution to policing and community safety both locally and nationally.
“He stayed resolute to the end, using his influence to call for changes to the law around assisted dying and raising awareness of Motor Neurone Disease.
“My condolences are with his family and friends – and the entire Durham OPCC team – at this sad time.”
