Police apology after death of Kent cyclist

The family of a cyclist who died after he was found in a country lane with a fractured skull and 10 broken ribs has now been given a formal apology from the Chief Constable of Kent. The apology, they say, is welcome - the delay is not.

Richard Jordan had been cycling near his home in North East Kent in 2011. His death was ruled to be an accident. But a report by the police's own professional standards department said the investigation into his death was in places - 'unprofessional and unacceptable'.

And as a misconduct hearing found no officer to be at fault, Mr Jordan's family say an apology will not stop their fight for justice continuing. Abigail Bracken reports.
