Cleared PC in fresh court action

A former Cleveland Police officer who won an 18-year legal fight against the force after he was wrongfully jailed is to take further court action.

Former traffic officer Sultan Alam, 48, was jailed for 18 months in 1996 for conspiracy to steal car parts, but was cleared by the Court of Appeal in 2007.

He was awarded £400,000 damages and is now taking action against the Police Federation claiming it "abandoned" him. Read More: Wrongly jailed PC's new legal bid
