The deputy mayor for policing in London will not face investigation after he was referred to the police watchdog over claims linked to his previous job as a council leader.

Stephen Greenhalgh was referred to the Independent Police Complaints Commission (IPCC) in January over the allegations from his time at Hammersmith and Fulham Council.

He said that the claims were "baseless allegations" that were "politically motivated".Today the IPCC said:

"In the absence of any evidence to indicate that Mr Greenhalgh may have committed a criminal offence, the IPCC will not be investigating the complaint."
