Met Police's senior officer reinstated after misconduct probe

A senior police officer has been cleared of gross misconduct almost a year after he was suspended over claims of "inappropriate behaviour".

The Metropolitan Police's Director of Professional Standards found Colin Kennedy had no case to answer.

Ch Supt Kennedy, who was in charge of Richmond and Twickenham in west London, was suspended in May over claims of "failures in duty".

A second officer was also cleared of wrongdoing and reinstated.

Ch Supt Kennedy had waived his right to anonymity during the investigation.
