Durham Police have issued a statement following an IPCC investigation into the New Years Day shootings in Hordon in which they were criticised over the way they handled a man who killed three people, and then himself.
"We are aware that the IPCC has updated the victims’ families on the outcome of their investigation into firearms licencing decision-making in the case of Michael Atherton, and supplied them with their report.
"We've been informed by the IPCC that it is their recommendation that there are no criminal or misconduct cases to answer for any member of Durham Constabulary."
