Calls for police complaints body in Isle of Man

A Manx politician is calling for an external body to investigate complaints against the police force.

Alex Downie, a member of the island's Legislative Council, says he wants a special complaints commission to be set up to avoid bias.

In the UK they have the Independent Police Complaints Commission (IPCC).

At the moment, there is a police complaints procedure but it still has senior officers investigating allegations made by the public.
