Bettison subject of two IPCC investigations

The police watchdog will today publish a report in alleged misconduct by former West Yorkshire Chief Constable Sir Norman Bettison, in relation to the 1989 Hillsborough tragedy.

The Independent Police Complaints Commission (IPCC) has been investigating an allegation that he attempted to influence the decision-making process of West Yorkshire Police Authority in respect to investigating his conduct.

He is also the subject of a second IPCC investigation into allegations he gave misleading information after the tragedy, when he was chief inspector with South Yorkshire Police.
