James Fenton case - PSNI accepts Ombudsman's criticism

Twelve police officers have been disciplined for their handling of the disappearance of a 22-year-old man from the Ulster Hospital in Dundonald.

James Fenton went missing at the start of July 2010, but it was 10 weeks before his body was found fewer than 40 metres away in the hospital grounds.

A Police Ombudsman's report strongly criticised the PSNI investigation.

A PSNI spokesman said officers had learned lessons from the case and accepted the ombudsman's findings.
