High winds bring damage and disruption to Yorkshire
Windy weather has caused disruption across Yorkshire's roads and damage to homes - in South Yorkshire a roof has been blown off and into the street below:
In North Yorkshire police have dealt with more than 80 incidents in four hours.
Those included a very large For Sale sign blowing into the road.
North Yorkshire Police say they have been called to 81 incidents of highway disruption between 12:00 and 16:00 today, with fallen trees and signs.
The force says if people come across fallen trees they should contact their local council, not the police, unless there is a significant risk to others, or there has been a collision involving injuries.
The weather has also caused a number of power cuts and caused rail disruption:
The IOPC found no evidence that the irreparable damage to the phone had been caused deliberately or with the motive to conceal any information.
IOPC director Catrin Evans, who oversaw the investigation, said: "Mr Veale volunteered to our investigators that he was embarrassed by his behaviour over a momentary loss of self-control on the golf course, at a time of personal and professional stress.
"However, chief constables are expected to promote ethical values, lead by personal example and act as ambassadors for the standards of professional behaviour.
"That Mr Veale chose to give a different account to the truth, both verbally and in writing on several occasions and for some time, in our view amounted to a case to answer for misconduct relating to honesty and integrity."
The IOPC agreed for the issue to be dealt with by a management action plan put in place by Cleveland Police and Crime Commissioner Barry Coppinger.
In a statement Mr Veale said he gave an inaccurate account to avoid "sensationalist" coverage in the media.
He added: "I regret that I gave any account at all as to why the damage was caused as there was no reason to do so as this was simply an accident.
"I want to take this opportunity to apologise for not handling this matter differently."
Cleveland Police and Crime Commissioner Barry Coppinger said: "...having now had the chance to witness the work of Chief Constable Veale at close hand for some months, there is no doubt in my mind that he is the right person to drive forward the process of transforming Cleveland Police so that our officers and staff can focus on their continuing programme of hard work and proudly keeping the public of Cleveland safe."
