Responding to today’s High Court Decision in Manchester to quash the suspension of Neil Rhodes, Lincoln MP Karl McCartney said:
After the decision by the Independent Police Complaints Commission (IPCC) not to investigate this matter, this verdict by the High Court in Manchester should be seen as a reality check for Police & Crime Commissioners (PCCs) up and down our Country. Commissioners need to think long and hard before taking the decision to suspend a Chief Constable and as my initial reservations have borne out; this case just goes to show there are always two sides to every story.
