Brian Moore, Wiltshire's former Chief ConstableBrian Moore, Wiltshire's former Chief ConstableBrian Moore, Wiltshire’s former chief constable, who was seconded to run the government’s troubled Border Force immigration agency, will not be returning to the Devizes-based county police headquarters after all.

Although his contract was not due to end until December, Chris Hoare, the Wiltshire Police Authority chairman, has revealed that Mr Moore’s four-year term will now finish in September.

This follows the surprise announcement that Mr Moore has quit the Border Agency post following continued concerns over the agency’s inability to control immigration at Heathrow with the Olympic Games imminent.

In a statement to Marlborough News Online, Mr Hoare said: “We have been made aware that Brian Moore will not be applying for the permanent role of head of the Border Force.  Back in February 2012, when we agreed to the secondment, we agreed that Brian's contract in Wiltshire would end when the Home Office secondment concluded.

“His contract was due to end in any event on the 31 December of this year. However, Brian Moore's contract will now end in September when he leaves the Border Force.  We would like to wish him every success in his future career."
