Legal action dropped against police forces

The former Chief Constable of Cleveland Police, Sean Price and suspended Deputy, Derek Bonnard have dropped legal action against three police forces and the man in charge of the investigation into claims of alleged corruption in the force.

Mr Price and Mr Bonnard had previously announced that they would be taking legal proceedings against the police forces providing support to Operation Sacristy, as well as against Keith Bristow - the Director General of the National Crime Agency.

Mr Price and Mr Bonnard had previously claimed that they had been unlawfully arrested and detained, and that their human rights had been both trespassed and breached.
