The IPCC has decided that no police officers are to face misconduct charges over Hollie Gazzard's murder, but they do need to learn lessons.
20 year old Hollie was attacked by her ex-boyfriend Asher Maslin at the salon in Gloucester where she worked.
Maslin's mother says she begged police to arrest him the day before he murdered Hollie. An enquiry into the conduct of officers has found that no charges of misconduct will be brought - but lessons will be learnt from the handling of the case.
The IPCC investigation into Gloucestershire Police contact with Hollie Gazzard has concluded and we will be publishing the findings in the near future. Based on the evidence gathered in the investigation we have not recommended misconduct action, although we identify areas of learning for individuals and the force.
