The independent Police Complaints Authority has agreed to the disciplinary charges to be preferred against three Merseyside Police officers who investigated the death of Paula Gilfoyle.

Merseyside Police proposed that a detective superintendent, a detective chief inspector and a detective constable should face disciplinary charges of neglect of duty. In addition, the detective constable will face a charge of falsehood or prevarication.

PCA Deputy Chairman (Discipline) Peter Moorhouse agreed to the proposals after close examination of the case.

He said: 'I believe that the proposed charges are appropriate following the detailed investigation. In addition to the formal charges, there will be 'advice' for these and other officers on related matters.'
