Humberside Police apologise over broken leg strip search misconduct

Andy Marsters

BBC Radio Humberside

There's been further reaction to the news that five Humberside Police officers have been found guilty of misconduct after leaving a man with broken legs naked in a cell for five hours.

The man ultimately faced no charges.

The statement issued by the Force yesterday did not reflect the action taken by Humberside Police and could be interpreted as being defensive, when the Force had actually fully accepted its fault and apologised to the victim and his family.''

Keith HunterPolice and Crime Commissioner for Humberside
Keith Hunter
BBC

I would like to record that we have unreservedly apologised to both the individual and his family. The facts speak for themselves and in this incident, they show that the care provided fell significantly below the standards we expect from our staff and officers.''

Promotion to the Premier League this weekend would see Hull City put on the world stage of the Premier League.

Hull East MP: 'Humberside Police need to learn lessons'

Andy Marsters

BBC Radio Humberside

Karl Turner, the shadow Attorney General, has responded to the news that five Humberside Police officers were found to have badly treated a man in custody.

Humberside Police say they are making changes but say they deal with 18,000 people in custody suites each year, mostly without incident.

Karl Turner
BBC

What's surprising to me is that the detainee came into custody and saw a medic but this person was never actually charged with any offence. It is a really bad report so lessons have got to be learnt.''
