Ron Ball, released a statement through his Deputy Commission, Eric Wood.
We will be seeking assurances that in future all national guidelines are adhered to. We are committed to ensuring that Warwickshire Police operate in an open and transparent manner and that lessons have been learned from the mistakes of the last 24 hours."
