LEADERS of the county's response to the coronavirus crisis are due to give an update today (Tuesday) and answer questions from the public.

Police, fire and crime commissioner Julia Mulligan will lead the live broadcast and will be joined by North Yorkshire's Chief Constable Lisa Winward and Chief Fire Officer Andrew Brodie.

The meeting will start at 1pm and will be broadcast live on YouTube and on the commissioner's website.

People can submit questions in advance by email to info@northyorkshire-pfcc.gov.uk, posting on Twitter using the hashtag #NYscrutiny or commenting on Facebook.

Although the commissioner's office says not all questions will be put to the panel, they will be used for the general discussion.

The broadcast is the fifth update on the coronavirus carried out by the commissioner's office.
