North Yorkshire Police have responded to criticism from Claudia Lawrence's family over the investigation into her disappearance. A spokesperson from the force said:
"North Yorkshire Police invited the National Policing Improvement Agency to conduct a second voluntary review of the investigation in 2010. Their report concluded that the investigation had been conducted with integrity and objectivity.
Where individuals had been subject to investigation, no investigative opportunities had been overlooked. The reviewers noted that good practice was evident in the investigation and that those strategies reviewed conformed to nationally approved standards.”
