Complaint upheld against Cleveland Police

The police watchdog, the IPCC, has upheld a complaint that a Cleveland Police officer punched a man.

The man in his forties was arrested at home in Hartlepool last year.

He also said police went through his mobile phone to stop him filming the incident.

The officer involved will face a misconduct meeting, and the force has been asked to look into whether the man was wrongly arrested.
