An investigation has been launched into how a seven-year-old girl was injured when a gun was fired at Nottinghamshire Police's headquarters.

Three police officers - two firearms officers and a dog handler - have been served with gross misconduct notices

The Independent Police Complaints Commission wants to find out why live firearms were used as part of a demonstration at the public event for children and their families.

It also wants to discover if officers tried to cover up what happened.

Investigators want to know who - if anyone - authorised the use of guns during the tour on October 30. It will also look into whether the force has protocols to ensure public safety, and whether those were breached.

The IPCC will examine how officers reacted after the girl was hurt, and whether negligence had been reported in relation to firearms within the past six months.

Investigators have spoken to the child's family and looked at CCTV footage from that day.

“I am extremely concerned about the discharge of a police gun at an event attended by members of the public.

"The public must have confidence that police officers who carry guns do so with highest standards of care and professionalism – and that the policies and procedures that govern their work are rigorously adhered to at all times.”

– IPCC Commissioner Derrick Campbell, who is overseeing the investigation
