Chief Constable Sir Peter Fahy in IPCC misconduct probe
Greater Manchester's Chief Constable faces a criminal probe over an allegedly poorly-handled investigation into a suspected child sex offender.
Sir Peter Fahy was served with both a criminal and gross misconduct notice by the Independent Police Complaints Commission (IPCC).
The IPCC looked at allegations made by a whistleblower serving with the force.
Following the announcement, Sir Peter said: "As a chief constable you face making complex decisions on a daily basis about many high risk and challenging situations.
"It is right that this decision-making is scrutinised and that I am held to account as part of this investigation."
