Lincoln MP Karl McCartney has welcomed today's findings of the independent report which has cleared Lincolnshire Chief Constable of misconduct allegations.
“I am delighted that the investigation by Sir Peter Fahy, the Chief Constable of Greater Manchester Police, has cleared Lincolnshire Police Chief Constable Neil Rhodes of allegations of misconduct by Police and Crime Commissioner Alan Hardwick and those who advise him, " said Mr McCartney.
“Sir Peter’s report of course comes months after the decision earlier this year by the Independent Police Complaints Commission not to investigate the allegations against Chief Constable Rhodes and the High Court’s decision in Manchester to quash his suspension.
“As I have stated before, Police & Crime Commissioners up and down our Country 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.”
