SIR Stephen House is to step down as chief constable of Police Scotland, according to reports.

Sir Stephen had been under mounting pressure after it took officers three days to respond to a fatal car crash on the M9.

He also came under fire for the use of armed officers on routine patrols and the force’s stop-and-search policy on young people.

Sir Stephen had been expected to leave his post in September 2016, after his four-year contract was up, but now appears likely to quit his role by the start of December.
