Police response: IPCC recommendations have been 'noted and acted upon'

In a statement, Assistant Chief Constable Lee Freeman, force lead for custody, said Humberside Police had assisted the IPCC fully in their investigation.

The police officers and staff involved in this matter have faced misconduct procedures and have now been dealt with appropriately with the exception of one detention officer who is currently going through the appeal process.

The IPCC report has made two recommendations for the force which we have noted and acted upon. All prisoners now have one clearly designated officer assigned to them on arrival in the custody suite to ensure the best level of care is provided. We also believe we have a sufficient stock of tracksuits now available to ensure we do not run short as happened on this occasion.

Annually around 18,000 people are brought into the custody suites across the force and the vast majority pass through without incident. Many of those who come into custody have a range of issues for custody staff to consider including drug and alcohol problems, mental health difficulties and other concerns which can make it a very difficult environment to manage.

All police officers and staff who work within the custody suites are involved in regular training and when incidents such as these occur we ensure any lessons learned are shared with staff to reduce the risk of similar occurrences happening again.

EU Ref: Polish couple head for Yorkshire

The issue of control over our own borders is seen as one of the biggest deciding factors for people voting in the EU referendum.

Latest figures revealed net migration to the UK increased to the second highest level on record, sparking a war of words between rival campaigns. Boris Johnson said staying in the union would be like "kissing good-bye to control of immigration". But Immigration Minister James Brokenshire warned quitting the EU would not provide the "silver bullet" that leave campaigners claimed.

So who are the people behind the statistics? Michael Billington has been to Poland - to meet one couple moving to Yorkshire - in the search for work.

Tomorrow night on Calendar - as Dariusz and Paulina touch down in Yorkshire - we find out why immigration has become such a fundamental issue for voters - when they go to the polls on June the 23rd.
