Dave McLuckie "delighted" to be cleared of intimidating a witness

The former Cleveland Police Authority Chairman, David McLuckie, told reporters outside Newcastle Crown Court that he was "delighted" to be cleared of intimidating a witness.

Earlier this year the 52-year-old local councillor was jailed for eight months for persuading a friend to accept his speeding points, to protect his career.

He is still on police bail in relation to another investigation, called Operation Sacristy.
