Woman faces no criminal action after police info leak concerns

A woman who was arrested on suspicion of data protection offences and misconduct while working for Cumbria Police will face no criminal action.

The 50-year-old woman remains suspended from work.

Police will now begin a misconduct investigation in relation to any believed internal breach of the force's code of conduct.
