The body that oversees complaints made against the police has released this statement after Cleveland Police were made to pay £550,000 to a solicitor who was wrongly imprisoned.
"The IPCC managed an investigation into complaints against Cleveland Police in relation to a long running police investigation into the kidnap of a businessman. The IPCC investigation upheld some of the complaints, particularly around basic investigative failures. Recommendations were made around dealing with these failures and also around internal issues within the force, including processes around the consideration of suspension of officers. The IPCC is now managing a further investigation into new complaints made on behalf of the original complainant."
