Avon and Somerset Police and Crime Commissioner Sue Mountstevens said: “I’ve received a complaint against Chief Constable Andy Marsh relating to the terms of reference of Hampshire Constabulary’s internal meetings regarding a child abuse investigation in 2013.
“Complaints were made against Mr Marsh in 2013 when he was the Chief Constable of Hampshire Constabulary. These complaints were referred to the Hampshire Police and Crime Commissioner and were investigated for nearly 12-months by Essex Police Chief Constable Steve Kavanagh. In June 2014, Essex Police confirmed that they had found ‘no grounds to justify’ misconduct proceedings against Chief Constable Andy Marsh and the complaints were not upheld.
“I reviewed this latest complaint and given the background and the previous 12-month investigation I felt the complaint could be dealt with locally and directly with the complainant. The complainant has the right to appeal my decision. They have used that right, and the Independent Police Complaints Commission has referred the complaint back to me for local investigation, which means I will ask another police force to look at this.”
The 2013 investigation by Hampshire Constabulary was called Operation Flamborough.
