Avon and Somerset police chief cleared of wrongdoing
PUBLISHED: 13:32 01 February 2017 | UPDATED: 13:32 01 February 2017
An investigation into the region’s top police officer has revealed there is ‘no evidence’ he did anything wrong.
A complaint was made against Chief Constable Andy Marsh, pictured, relating to his work during an investigation when he worked in Hampshire.
A seven-month review was then carried out by an independent police force, but yesterday (Tuesday) it was revealed he committed no offence.
Police and Crime Commissioner Sue Mountstevens said: “The report from Essex Police found there is no evidence to support the complaints against Chief Const Marsh, therefore I have decided not to uphold the complaints.
“Essex Police has spent hundreds of hours on this matter and reviewed thousands of documents and I would like to thank them for their time.”
