Background, particular interests and hobbies:

Paul was born and brought up in Barrow in Furness, living there until 1978 when he joined Cumbria Constabulary, serving throughout West Cumbria in various roles until retirement in 2008.  Since then Paul became Chairman of the Motorcycle Action Group (MAG UK), the UK's largest Riders Rights organisation, as well as being a Director and Trustee of the MAG Foundation.

Paul stood down from these roles prior to becoming a County Council so he could concentrate on the role and also serving the Authority as a Member.  

Together with his wife, Paul now enjoys travelling in his motorhome and the freedom that gives to visit stately homes.
