The Independent Police Complaints Commission says it will investigate Gloucestershire Police after the collapse of the trial of four men accused of raping a woman at the Royal Agricultural University in Cirencester.

On the first day of the trial in March the prosecution announced they would offer no evidence and the four male defendants - three of whom were students at the university - were acquitted.

Issues have been raised concerning the police investigation and the disclosure of evidence in preparation for the trial.

The IPCC says it will carefully examine the actions of the officers involved during both the investigation and the pre-trial process.
