One of Cumbria's MPs says questions should be asked about why the county's police force spent so much time and money investigating a whistle-blowing case - only for it to end with no charges being brought.
The 6 month investigation followed the leaking of information about the Police and Crime Commissioner Richard Rhodes's expenses.
However, MP Tim Farron says the decision not to prosecute vindicates his view that these were whistleblowers and not criminals.
Tim Backshall reports.
