Two officers from Greater Manchester Police will face a gross misconduct hearing over the death of a PC during a training exercise.
Two women at the centre of a rape trial have criticised the police investigation and the trial process.
A Greater Manchester Police officer Robert Carroll, who posed as an addict during undercover operations, has been jailed for misconduct.
He was found guilty of false imprisonment, possession with intent to supply and using a firearm with the intention of causing harm or distress.
Edwards and Minister subjected their victim, a vulnerable man who was heavily addicted to drugs, to a terrifying experience.
Edwards was found guilty following a trial of false imprisonment and possession with intent to supply.
On 1 September 2014 they kidnapped the 31-year-old man over a drugs debt and took him to Edwards’s house where he was threatened with a machete.
Police say these men preyed on a vulnerable man, they provided him with drugs on tick, when he could not pay they started to use him to store their supply.
The threats escalated and when they found out he told the police he was storing drugs on their behalf, he was kidnapped and held at knife point.
*Paul Ward from Sale has been jailed for four years for the sexual abuse of two girls in the 1990s in Trafford. *He has also been ordered to sign the sex offenders register for life. Ward pleaded guilty to two counts of indecent assault at an earlier hearing.
One of his victims said in her statement: after he had performed his sickening acts on me it would leave me feeling sore, confused and all I used to think is: Why? Why was he hurting me? What have I ever done to him?
My life ever since he abused me has been nothing but pain. But the biggest thing this man has taken from me is my ability to parent my children, due to my mental health I now suffer from because of the abuse.
Detective Constable Nicola Graham from Trafford division, said: Ward’s abuse of these young girls is difficult for most people to comprehend. He subjected his victims to sustained sexual assaults over two years.
Both girls have been incredibly brave by helping us put Ward before the courts and have justice done for them. He is now where he belongs and thankfully will not be able to harm anyone else.
