A misconduct hearing is being held to investigate the actions of officers from Durham Police involved in the arrest of a man who died in custody.
Leonard McCourt, from Seaham, died at Peterlee police station in September 2010.
An Independent Police Complaints Commission report ruled that the actions of the officers were 'wholly inadequate' and an inquest ruled his death was caused by misadventure.
