The police watchdog, the Independent Police Complaints Commission, say complaints that led to Cumbria's Temporary Chief Constable being suspended do not amount to serious misconduct. Stuart Hyde was suspended last month. It also said the claims 'were based on unsupported suspicion'.
In a statement, the IPCC said it's completed a detailed assessment and decided it does not need to be involved further in an investigation at this stage. The matter has been passed to the Cumbria Police Authority, who are meeting this afternoon.
