Lincolnshire's Chief Constable challenges suspension in court

Lincolnshire's Temporary Chief Constable has gone to court to argue that his suspension by the county's Police and Crime Commissioner is unlawful. Neil Rhodes was removed from his post in February though it is only today that the full details behind that suspension have been made public.

It is claimed Neil Rhodes helped a Muslim lawyer from West Yorkshire Police to use his ethnicity to pursue damages following his dismissal. Mr Rhodes denies any wrong-doing saying his suspension is "unlawful" and he has today asked a High Court judge to grant a judicial review to get it quashed.
