Police officers cleared of misconduct charges

Two Kent Police officers have been cleared of charges of allowing a man who'd been arrested to die in front of them. PCs Maurice Leigh and PC Neil Bowdery both denied misconduct in public office after the death of Colin Holt in Gillingham.

An inquest decided he died from "positional asphyxia", which happens when a person's body position stops them from breathing.
