Lincolnshire's Police and Crime Commissioner says he's surprised that Karl McCartney, the MP for Lincoln, has written to the Home Secretary, expressing concern about the suspension of the county's Chief Constable Neil Rhodes.
Alan Hardwick, who has appointed the Chief Constable of Greater Manchester police to investigate potential conduct matters relating to Neil Rhodes, says he is hoping for a swift resolution over the suspension. But the MP Karl McCartney has asked the Home Secretary to give her views on the case.
Karl McCartney, the MP for Lincoln though, doesn't think the issue's been handled correctly, and claims even Mr Rhodes was forced to wait a week after his suspension until he was told the content of the allegations against him. He's written to the Home Secretary, asking her to look into the matter.
Mr Hardwick says he's surprised though that Karl McCartney's taken that action.
