Police watchdog: No investigation necessary

The Independent Police Complaints Commission (IPCC) has today confirmed it won't be investigating Suffolk Police in relation to the deaths of Fiona Anderson and her three children.

Suffolk Police voluntarily referred the case to the IPCC yesterday because officers had been called to the house before the deaths, but the watchdog has said there is no cause for an independent investigation into the actions of the police.

In a statement the IPCC said:

There is nothing at this stage to indicate the police should have had foresight of the tragic events that unfolded.

We are satisfied on the basis of the information at this time that no IPCC inquiry into Suffolk Constabulary contact with Fiona Anderson is required, and that investigations should continue locally.
