Breaking: Update on Neil Rhodes’ suspension

An investigation is still underway into the suspension of Neil Rhodes despite the high court in Manchester quashing Lincolnshire PCC Alan Hardwick’s decision to suspend the Chief Constable.

A Home Office spokesman said: “It is for PCCs to make decision around appointing, suspending and removing chief constables.

“The PCC will wish to consider the court’s judgement.

“We understand that an investigation is still ongoing and it would be inappropriate to comment further at this time.”
